I'm excited to announce that the new gouache video is finished and in the pipeline to be released two weeks from today, June 22.
The video is 72 minutes long and has six different chapters, each focusing on a different approach to painting on location in opaque watercolor.
The subjects include a neon sign, a snowy landscape at dusk, a convenience store, a swamp, some antique character toys, and a Formula 1 race car. Some of the studies are precise and controlled, and others are bold and painterly.
The video will put you close to the action, giving you a "driver's seat" perspective. You'll see each of the steps, and I'll explain why I made each decision. The edit is brisk and entertaining without sacrificing any of the informational content. The video will be available both as a DVD and a download that you can own.

Gouache presents its own unique virtues and limitations, so I made sure to include plenty of practical painting tips for both the beginner and the advanced painter. For example, painting in black and white is a good way to get accustomed to the medium—or to paint in tight quarters, like a concert hall or a restaurant.
Gouache Week Starts June 22
During the week starting June 22, we'll focus totally on gouache. I'll share little-known information about the formulation of gouache that I learned from writing to six different manufacturers, and I'll present lots of video clips and painting tips.
There will be discounts, prizes, and live painting demos. If you've been thinking about getting into gouache, getting back into it, or going further with it, be sure to stay tuned to GurneyJourney.
