Gouache Townscapes in the French Tradition

Gouache, an opaque form of watercolour, was always more popular in Europe than the English tradition of transparent watercolour. It has many attributes in that it can be used thickly like oil painting or in rich washes similar to watercolour. Join artist Linda Birch to create your own work inspired by the Museum’s collection of Gouache paintings.
