Using a simple set of 8 gouache paints, participants will investigate primary, secondary and complementary colours.  The paints are water-based and easy to use.

Enjoy looking at the difference between tone and hue.  Mix and match colours; learn how to mix neutrals and greys.

Discover how colours affect each other and work together and when and how to use different brushes.
