Description

Class Experience

The student will learn how to use watercolor paints by using different amounts of paint and water to create this painting.  This is a loose style of painting so that the student can explore how colors work together, and we will learn a wet-on-wet technique that allows colors to run and purposely bleed into each other.  They will learn how to correct mistakes and which colors to avoid mixing that will create 'muddy' hues.
The student will be sent a drawing of the turtle and a video (available also on this listing page) of how to trace this image onto their watercolor paper so that they are ready to paint when class begins.
For the best results with watercolor painting, the supplies used are very important: paper, brushes and paint. Please do not use the cheapest watercolor paints from the dollar store or discount stores...they will not have enough pigment in them to allow the student to learn how to layer and move color around the page satisfactorily. -Watercolor paper. (I encourage using the Canson XL Series Watercolor Paper, Wire Bound, 140 Pound, 9 x 12 Inch or 7x10, 30 Sheets). It can be used as an art journal for various classes, but pages are perforated and can be removed easily for framing, if desired). You can find these journals at your local Michaels or on Amazon (https://amzn.to/30v51qG). Watercolor paper is essential to handle the amount of water that will be added during this class. -watercolor paint set. I recommend a watercolor set that allows for good pigments (which will be lacking in cheap sets at discount stores). I used the Jane Davenport "Sea Glitz" Watercolor set ( https://amzn.to/33LHd45 ), as it has shimmery paints in it. But her 'Brights Palette' has very nice colors as well. If you live near a Michaels, you may find these there with a 40% coupon to make more affordable. (They come in tins that include a 'palette' area for mixing colors and a card for painting painting a swatch of each color in order to choose the correct color they want to use.) I've had my sets for 2-3 years...they are a good quality and last a long time. - watercolor brushes in various sizes. I like a #10 or 12 Round and a 1/2" Filbert Watercolor brush to start with. (A very small brush will not work for this technique). These brushes have softer bristles than brushes for acrylic, and if cared for, will last a long time. - water jar - paper towels
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
