The goal of the class will be to demystify watercolors, from planning, materials, composition, washes, shapes, perspective, values, edges and anything else that comes up.

Materials List

- Backing Board and Masking tape to mount paper

- Easel

- Water Bucket and Spray Bottle,

- Palette with mixing wells,

- Paper should be good quality 140 pound at least. I use Saunders Waterford rough.

Brushes:

- The size of the brush is important. There should be 3 brushes, one large, one medium and one small.

- 1 Large soft brush for washes, ie. Escoda Aquario Mop # 18 OR Princeton Quill # 6 - OR 1¼ inch Flat Wash OR Cheap Joe – Dream Catcher # 16 (this is made by Escoda)

- 1 Medium Round, ie. Cheap Joe Golden Fleece # 12 OR Escoda Perla # 16 OR Cheap Joe – Dream Catcher # 12 (this is made by Escoda)

- 1 small rigger, ie. Cheap Joe Golden Fleece rigger # 4

- The brushes listed above are good brushes but if you already have brushes that are equivalent then yours will be fine.

Paints

- Three primary colors, a warm and a cool of each, such as:

Reds – Alizarin Crimson and Quinacridone Red,

Blues – Ultramarine and Cobalt

Yellows – Lemon Yellow and Raw Sienna

Neutral Tint, Gouache White
