Come with me on my latest greatest sketchbook adventure which started with my last online venture, SKETCHBOOKERY where I shared my drawing & watercolor process. In OH MY GOUACHE! I show you every single thing I’ve learned about working with gouache paint inside the covers of my sketchbook. From simple graphic pages to more realistic depictions of small & large scenes from daily life, this is a jumbo-sized video workshop featuring dozens of demonstrations of me painting with gouache inside my sketchbook. This is more of a show not tell workshop. While I provide loads of modeling, think-alouds, and sharing of my imperfect messy process with you, a lecture format & explicit step-by-step instruction class this is not. If you’re interested in a deep look inside my daily practice of painting with gouache, you’ll be happy as a clam. Play is a powerful teacher and through play & exploration I’ll take you on a glorious romp through the velvety world of gouache. If you’ve been curious about gouache (rhymes with squash), but weren’t sure how to begin incorporating it into your current sketchbook practice, I’ll show you everything I know. All you need is sense of curiosity, the courage to dive in and begin, and a burning desire to develop & maintain an ongoing practice in your sketchbook.

Howdy, I’m Mary Ann Moss. I’m a schoolmarm by day and a sketchbook keeper by night. I have bookcases filled with stacks of handmade visual journals, sketchbooks, and travel journals. Making pictures of my life inside the covers of handmade books is a deeply rewarding experience. Since 2007 I’ve been blabbering away about my art process to anyone who will listen over at my blog, Dispatch From LA. Occasionally, in between sketchbookery, traveling, teaching, walking, reading poetry to my cats, napping, and educating young punks, I get a big idea and turn it into an online class. This is such a time.
