WATERCOLOR EXPLORATION - SESSION B

Gale Trausch

$155.00
Even long time watercolor painters need to experiment and to ‘let go’ with this beautiful medium. As a long time artist and instructor, I have noticed that most beginner to intermediate watercolor artists need time to get to know the paint as well as the water activating the paint. In this class we will play and experiment without the stress of ‘making a painting’ while learning some basics theory and techniques. There are no prior drawing skills neded.

Supplies: Please purchase or bring the following supplies*: 140 lb. Watercolor paper- a few sheets, a ‘block’, or pad to the first class. There will be some ‘samples’ for you to try before investing in more expensive paper. Watercolor brushes ONLY: please ask at an art store IF you are not sure OR save your receipts in case you need to return them. 1 large wash brush ( flat) 1 either a #2 or a #3 round brush for detail 1 - 1/2” oval wash brush 1 either a #6 or #8 round brush (synthetic ok) Watercolor paints: Bring what you have if you have any tubes that are still workable (not hard) A basic set is perfectly ok. I just would NOT recommend paint from Walmart or a discount store. Coupons for Michaels or Hobby Lobby are great for paint sets. Otherwise you will start out with the following colors: Ultramarine blue Cadmium or lemon yellow Cadmium or quinacridone red Indigo Burnt Sienna Olive or Sap green 1 small tube of White gouache (opaque watercolor) 1 covered or foldable palette (needs a lid) 1 roll of paper towels 1 water container (large yogurt containers work well) 1 roll of artists or masking tape Your sketchbook Pencils: 1 each ...2H and an HB drawing pencils.
