Beginning Watercolor 3: Mastering the Wash
Days: Monday September 21, 28, October 5, 12
Time: 10:00 - Noon. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early so we can begin right at 10am.
Cost: $100. A Materials List is provided below as they are not included in the class fee.
We will explore the four basic washes so important in watercolor painting: flat, gradated, wet-into-wet, and streaked. This class will give you the foundation to build on as you continue to grow in your painting skills.
REGISTRATION: You may register by clicking Add to Cart button below or stop in to the studio to register in person. If Registration is "sold out" please email the studio to be put on a waiting list.
NOTE: At present I will be limiting the maximum number of students to 4 in order to meet the Covid 19 restart protocols. You will be sitting at separate tables 6 feet apart. Masks are required when a 6 foot distance cannot be maintained and there will be plenty of hand sanitizer.
Watercolor Materials List (I have a few supplies available for purchase - check with me if you are having difficulty finding items)
Please note: for those who have already been taking my classes you will need to add a mop brush (also called a wash brush) to your supplies!
I suggest that you purchase artist/professional quality paints and paper as you will be most happy with the results that cannot be attained with lesser quality materials.
Paints: Tubes or Pans are acceptable. I prefer tubes. Brands: M Graham, Blick Artist,
Grumbacher, Rembrandt, Windsor Newton, Holbein
Basic Colors Needed: Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Light or Aureolin, Burnt Sienna and Ivory Black.
Other Optional Colors (nice to have but not required to get started): Cadmium Red Medium, Viridian Green, Raw Umber, Cerulean Blue, Yellow Ochre, Prussian Blue.
Paper: 140 lb. cold pressed - cotton, acid free, archival. Brands: Strathmore 400 Series (brown covers) Fabriano (Artistico), Arches (any), Stonehenge
Minimum of 9x12 in size. Single sheets (can be cut down to smaller sizes), pads and blocks are acceptable. (I will have some individual sheets for sale if needed)
Brushes: Natural or Synthetic Hair Brushes are acceptable: suggested sizes: Rounds #2, #6, #8 Flats 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 (I have sets you can purchase of inexpensive synthetic brushes that work well for $15.00 +tax)
Palette: I suggest a watercolor palette with a cover with plenty of wells for paint and mixing areas. If you do not want to invest in one, you can use a white ceramic or correlle plate and keep it in a plastic container.
Other Items: 2 containers for water, paper towels, pencils, erasers.
