Karen Johnson



Adult class 18+

Increase your drawing and painting skills in this class that uses fruit as your subject matter. Learn how to draw and then transfer fruit to canvas and then bring it to life. Karen will share her technique for layering rich backgrounds and painting realistic depictions of fruit. At the end of the class we'll have a show and tell of our garden bounty!

Supplies: Bring several fairly simple pieces of fruit, like apples or pears. Sketchbook or drawing paper, pencil, eraser, 2-8" x 10" (or similar size) gessoed boards or canvas (one will be for practice), shallow plastic container with lid-at least 5" x 7" (used for palette for paint), paper towels, water container, a couple of small plastic containers to mix paint in, mister, sponge or rag, brushes-(2", 1", #12 & 4 flats, #0 & 4 rounds or whatever acrylic brushes you have that can do detail), acrylic paint-(some suggestions: titanium white, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow light, aureolin yellow, permanent rose, cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, burnt sienna, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, indanthrene blue, hookers green). If you have a favorite palette, you're welcome to bring those colors.
