Course Supplies: Note: the best quality you have or are able to purchase
Link below for on-line ordering with all the foundation supplies. Added Miscellaneous listed below
* Images/Photos- I will provide an image of a landscape or Still Life to do.
* Paint You are welcome to bring your own.
Primary Colors: Red, Blue, Yellow - You just need the primary colors bare minimum of course ( make all the other the colors on the color wheel!!)
White gouache or acrylic white - I try to not use white most of the time with watercolor painting, but it is is nice to have on hand. One example is splatters of snow flakes or ocean spray! I like preserving the white of the paper as I paint!
This Winsor & Newton Cotman palette along with brush set and paper is what I recommend for beginners as a great start! As you grow in watercolor painting, you will continue using the colors in your initial palette and then discover even more colors to add to your personal palette!
These are the Winsor & Newton kits color names ( View in link above)
Lemon Yellow Hue, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Permanent Rose, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue Hue, Viridian Hue, Sap Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Ivory Black, and Chinese White.
... in whichever brand and form of Watercolors you have- pan, tube, expensive, inexpensive.
Color Mixing - I will be showing you how to create value range and mix a wide range of colors, with just using the primary and secondary colors.
Any additional colors will just add to the color range within your artwork.
* Watercolor Brushes - the best quality you have or are able to purchase
* Watercolor Paint Brush Sets: Synthetic-White or nicer (Round 2, 8, 12, Stroke 3/4, Flat Wash 1/2).
I suggested a good base set for beginners. As you grow you might add more brushes
* Paper - the best quality you have or are able to purchase, it just needs to be watercolor paper
* Misc. Supplies from home needed:
* Blowdryer (If you have one) - for drying layers in between

Enjoy learning how to paint landscapes with oils in the Alla Prima style. Techniques for approaching landscape painting will be introduced and explored. This class will be structured around the drawing, painting and development of expressive techniques of landscape art.
Class will include ongoing critique, “how to” demos, and tutorials designed for each individual student’s natural way to paint using oils.
Additional Class Information: Students will learn Nōtan and planning before putting brush to canvas. All the “work” is planned before so the actual fun of painting can show results.
A short demo followed by time to paint your own landscapes from photographs.
Artist Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Previous drawing and painting experience is required.
