What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

We will work from still life. Emphasis will be on light, layers, and transparent washes with a gradual buildup of detail through color and tone. The particular qualities of various pigments and papers will be examined. We will explore transparency and opacity, with emphasis on composition and rhythm. Students will receive individual attention and instruction, as well as group critiques.


Registration fee included.

MATERIALS:

Paints: Recommend tube paints, artist’s quality Windsor & Newton, Sennelier

Palette:

  • Lemon Yellow
  • Aureolin
  • Cadmium Yellow
  • Cadmium Orange
  • Cerulean Blue
  • Cobalt Blue
  • French Ultramarine
  • Cadmium Red
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Permanent Rose
  • Indian Red
  • Raw Sienna
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Black or Payne’s Gray

Brushes:

  • #12 Round (I use two of these, both are sable, and that’s all I use)
  • Optional: #8 Round, #5 Round. Synthetic is fine, but sable is best.
  • 1” or larger flat wash brush (Utrecht Ox Hair)

Paper:

  • Arches Pads or blocks are fine. 16” X 20” or 10” X 14”. (This is what I use) I like hot press
  • paper, but Arches Cold Press is easier for beginners,
    OR: 22” X 30”, 140lb sheets can be folded and cut into smaller pieces

There are three types of surface:

  • Cold Press is medium textured, and is easiest to work with. Recommended
  • Hot Press paper is very smooth and shows marks
  • Rough Paper, which is as it sounds, and is highly textured

Paper Grammage

  • 90 lb is thin, light and good for sketching and experimentation
  • 140 lb is medium weight and is recommended
  • 300 lb is heavy weight, does not buckle and can be re-worked extensively

Additional Items:

  • A large, plastic palette with a lid. John Pike suggested (I like to use 2 small palettes, one for cool colors and one for warm)
  • Two water containers
  • Pencil: 2B
  • Paper Towels
  • ¾” masking tape
  • A small natural sponge
