For decades photorealist Chuck Close has been producing portraits using precisely mixed patches of value, chroma, and hue. Drawing inspiration from Close’s pixelated watercolor print "Hillary," participants will discover the water-based medium gouache. Long favored by graphic designers before the advent of computer technology, gouache is an incredibly versatile painting medium used to produce flat, opaque layers of color
