Introduction to Watercolor Painting 2—Susan Pfahl

March 14, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

May 2,  9, 16, & 23 April, 2023

4 sessions, 3 hours each

$120 Members, $140 Non-members

Minimum 2, Maximum 8


Continuing on your Watercolor journey:

If we make mud, lets figure out how that happened, so we only do it again if we really want mud! We will continue with perspective, control of the water, play with resists, and consider how to evaluate an a painting.  Masterpieces are unlikely, but skills will increase.


No pre-requisites required for this class.



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

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.


Masking Fluid

White Artists’ Tape


Two water containers. (I use old Yogurt containers)

Pencil and white or gum eraser.

Paper towels.

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.
