About the Course
Once the design is finished, the process of creating a jewel begins with a “gouaché” painted design, depicting its color, shape, and volume in actual size.
Using various sources of inspiration, understand the three stages which allow a jewel to be represented in two dimensions: the drawing, the tracing, and the gouaché.
