Watercolor Workshop FA10

Come and explore the beauty and joy of watercolor! This workshop is open to beginners and intermediates. Work from still life set ups (or photographs) and landscapes - painting outside if weather permits. Basic drawing, composition and watercolor techniques will be demonstrated. The last class will "repurpose" your discarded watercolors, turning them in to new art.  Repurposing is a fun and liberating process - tearing apart the old and creating something new using mat medium, paints and ink.  Materials fee, payable to the instructor, is $15.


Supply list: You will need the following supplies for the first day of class.

Paints in tubes work best-they are vibrant and easy to mix, buy what you can afford.  

Paints:  Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Winsor Violet, Hooker Green, Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber

Paper:  D’Arches block 140 lb. cold press-10x14 or 12x16 or 22x30.  You can also purchase less expensive blocks and paper if you wish, just try to purchase 140lb weight if possible-anything thinner will be frustrating to work with.  You can purchase sheets of paper, but purchase a piece of foam core to tape it to so you have a work surface.  You will need to purchase white artist tape if you go this route.

Brushes:  Round sable brushes (you can use good quality synthetic if you wish)  I use #6, #8, #10 and #12

Palette:  White plastic with wells around the edge(folding or not) or Holbien metal folding palette.

Additional Supplies:  Water container, #2 pencils, Kneaded eraser, Spray bottle-cosmetic spray bottle-inexpensive, Palette knife-plastic is fine, Paper towels, a portable easel if you have one.
