Nuhn - watercolor - Diving into Water - Still and Moving
Classes are nonrefundable.
This month we will explore the various ways to paint water both still and moving including waves. We will meet in a Zoom meeting room on Monday mornings ( not a Facebook room.). Instructions for joining Zoom will be sent to each student the Sunday prior to class. There we will discuss the various aspects of painting water and as the month goes on students will have an opportunity to share their successes and challenges and I will answer questions that come up. All reference photos AND painting demonstration videos will be posted in a private Facebook group set up specifically for this month’s class. I will attempt to post all the lessons early in the month so students can work at their own pace. This also allows someone to join our class mid way into the month. All the videos will be available for viewing for the month of January and all of February. Since all the lessons are provided early, students must register for the entire month of lessons.
Paper - Arches or Fabriano 140# cold press. You will need a minimum of four sheets 11x15.
Brushes - My favorite are Silver Black Velvet 3000S in 4, 8, 12 (rounds) or Steve Quiller brushes made by Richeson Professional in those same sizes. I also like a small detail brush either 2/0 by Steve Quiller or Raphael Kaerell size 0 or other good detail brush.
I will provide class my complete list of colors but I tend to use a limited palette of a warm and cool of each of the primary colors. Suggested professional tube colors are Arylide Yellow, Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Rose (or Red Rose Deep), Cadmium Red Light, Cobalt Blue (or Ceerulean Blue), Antwerp Blue (or Ultramarine Blue or Phthalo Blue) plus Lamp Black and Dr. Ph Martin’s Bleed Proof White (optional). Feel free to use whatever colors are already on your palette.
Palette, support board (slightly larger than your paper), masking or artists tape or clips to hold paper, two water containers, spray bottle, Pebeo drawing gum, Viva Paper towels or Scott shop towels.
