Gouache paint is similar to watercolour and acrylic paint. Just like watercolour, one can mix it with water and use it across a canvas, paper or any other artistic surface. Gouache painting goes back to the 18th century at a time when it was used to create historically and visually appealing paintings.
To spread awareness about this art form, The Circle Community brought together a Gouache workshop with Sriparna Sanyal.
About The Artist
Sriparna Sanyal is a watercolour artist, who also works on various kinds of art forms and has a beautiful Instagram account that showcases her colourful artworks.
The Workshop Began
Sriparna greeted the attendees and introduced herself as to how she is now into art full time since 2015. She conducts classes for adults as well as children. She started painting the canvas with a shade of purple colour, red colour, yellow and orange. She blended the colour of the clouds with white colour using her fingers.
Sanyal continued painting the lower half of the canvas using light strokes of orange colour and continued to draw ripples in the water using black and brown colour and finally drew rock and palm trees using black colour and a black marker. She concluded the sketch by drawing a flying bird and the branches of a tree and small birds with a black highlighter.
Towards The End Of The Workshop
All the attendees showed their beautiful sunset sky. The sky indeed looked pink on the screen.
Sriparna was delighted to see the co-creations and appreciated the participants.
The attendees were from different parts of the country. They also belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. The Circle Community, as always, was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
On this note, here’s us signing off until next time!
