Landscape – Gouache/Acrylic with Rod Bax
Rod Bax is an established artist who has been exhibiting professionally for over 30 years. While Rod works in a variety of mediums, he is best known for his gouache and watercolours of the wetland areas of the State’s southeast.
Rod has been a finalist in the prestigious Waterhouse Natural History Prize on numerous occasions, and his concern and compassion for the preservation of the natural world is always at the core and heart of his work.
This is a three-week course that aims to develop students’ use of gouache as a medium.
