An introduction to watercolor from the absolute beginner. We will discuss the supplies and why we use them. Then, we will play with a few basic shapes and add a bit of perspective. While masterpieces are unlikely, this class offers a start to your watercolor journey.
Watercolor paints by Daniel Smith:
Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Pereylene Red, Hansa Yellow Medium
Brushes for watercolor: One 1” Flat
One ½” Flat
Round brushes, size 2 and size 6, or so
Watercolor Paper Tablet 140#, Cold Press or Rough 10 x 14 or 12 x 16, or similar size
A board slightly larger than the watercolor paper (Can be stiff cardboard wrapped in plastic wrap and taped to keep water away from it.) I use a masonite board.
4 Binder clips large enough to hold paper to the board. White artists’ tape may also be used.
Plastic palette such as Richeson 8 well slant mixing tray (An old, plastic ice cube tray works too!) Nicer, but more expensive is a Blick Covered Palette or similar.
Two water containers. (I use old Yogurt containers)
Pencil and white or gum eraser.
An old hair dryer, if you already have one.
Other items may be suggested in class, but are not required.
If you already have watercolor supplies, please bring what you already have!
