The Joy of Watercolor” is becoming a classic course for the students that want learn, perfect or practice this medium while creating a variety of landscapes.

Color theory and color mixing, even washes and gradations, textures, layering, wet on wet, wet on dry and dry brush are some of the techniques that we will discuss and practice during this six- three hours weekly sessions of “Landscapism”, a way to escape from it all spend a few hours painting, learning and socializing.

Materials



Watercolor paint in tubes or pans. You can use any watercolor paint you have, but these are the recommended colors: yellow lemon or cadmium yellow light-pale, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red medium, alizarine crimson, cobalt blue or cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre, raw sienna, burnt sienna, black. Blue gray by Old Holland or Lavender by Holbein can also be very useful colors to create sense of atmospheric distance or a gray-cloudy sky.

Brushes: #2, #8 and #14 round synthetic brushes, these brushes are cheap and versatile. If you can afford a Kolinsky sable brush you should buy a #8 round. The best brand is Winsor and Newton but it is very expensive. Raphael or Eskoda make very good quality Kolinsky sable brushes for much less. You also will need a 1” ½ or 2” flat synthetic or natural hair brush for washes.

Paper: a pad of 11”by 14” cold press watercolor paper by Arches, Fabriano or Winsor and Newton. You can also use any paper you like or you already have such as hot press, rag or hand made. We will also be practicing with hot press and rough finish paper, we will discuss about this in class.

Finally, you will need a mixing palette, water containers, pencils, kneaded erasers, and paper towels.
