Limited enrollment, please register early.
If you have painted before, and have comparable materials, bring what you have. I will have Academy Paints ($5/tube), Arches paper ($7.00 /sheet) and other supplies for sale at the workshop.
WATERCOLORS: 4 tubes good quality watercolors:
Permanent Rose, Red Rose Deep or Thalo Red
Cadmium Yellow Light or Pale
Ultramarine Blue and Thalo (or Winsor Blue Green Shade)
Note: Grumbacher Academy and Van Gogh are good quality student grade watercolors that are widely available. Cotman are not recommended. All “professional” and “artist”grade paints are very good.
They can all be used together.
PAPER: 140# Cold-Pressed 100% rag watercolor paper. Arches Recommended
1 full sheet (22” x 30”) cut or torn into quarters or Arches 9 x 12” pad
Note: If you have painted before and have good watercolor paper that is painted on one side, but don’t want to keep what’s on it, this is a good time to use the other side. Also, cheaper (watercolor)
paper can be used for the color mixing exercises.
BRUSH: Watercolor Brush (Need not be expensive, synthetic is fine)
Size 10 or 12 Round
PALETTE: A white plate with a plastic bag to fit is fine
(If you want to buy a palette, get a folding watercolor palette or a covered watercolor palette with a large mixing area. I use a folding palette (for traveling) and the “John Pike-Regular”
palette in the studio.)
