The joy of watercolor landscape @ Zoom Class
Dec 21 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

In this on line, 4-week course, the students will enjoy painting watercolor landscapes from photographic references, a good way of taking a vacation, virtually and safely traveling the world, enjoying beautiful landscapes during the quarantine.

During the 4- three hour sessions, the students will paint a variety of landscapes and practice rendering trees, grass, sky, water and all possible subjects that can be encountered in landscape painting.
The students will also practice fundamental watercolor techniques such as watercolor washes, gradations, texture, wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush and more.

The students will have access to the recorded Zoom sessions for the duration of the course and a month after the end of the course.

This feature is particularly useful in case of a missed class or to watch the class again and further practice the material discussed. Open to all skill levels.

200 US$




Materials:

Zoom: (I will set up a short Zoom session to discuss the materials needed and also practice connecting via Zoom)

Paint: 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 chrimson, 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.

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