Learn to paint landscapes in watercolor! We’ll discuss different techniques and approaches for natural features – like foliage, water, rocks, and distance — plus basic perspective for including buildings in your work. For most projects we’ll work from reference photos, and on days with good weather we might paint outdoors. Students are encouraged to keep their supply kit lightweight and fast to set up. Zero experience, some experience, and intermediate experience levels are all welcome!
Class space is limited.
Recommended Art Supplies:
a small block of watercolor paper
– cold-press paper is a good choice if you want to focus on painting
– hot-press paper is a good choice if you want to draw with ink and then paint
– smaller sizes like 5”x7”or 8”x10” are best for painting fast
a pigment ink pen
– single-width 0.5 (or larger) – Sakura Pigma Micron or Faber-Castell Pitt Pens are good choices
a small watercolor set
– pans are easier to transport, but tubs offer more options
– a reservoir brush with water in the handle is really convenient – but regular short-handle watercolor brushes are also great!
a mechanical pencil
a paper towel (or an old washcloth)
Optional Art Supplies:
artist or painters’ tape
a binder clip (or bulldog clip)
a compact travel easel (if you like to work upright)
