Contour Drawing and Watercolor: Paint from Your Own Photo

Call 720-561-5968 to register    

Create original compositions using your own photo(s). Alice will demonstrate composing and contour drawing from the inside out, guiding each student as necessary. After lunch, she will demo her approach to painting, and how to mix colors on the page. Then students will paint their own watercolor. Class will often end with a critique.
Please read: If you already have watercolor supplies bring what you have. The list below is a suggestion only. 140 lb. paper 11x14, 12x16, or 14x20 (blocks work well for this). I suggest Montval or Fabriano Artistica Blocks 12x16, 12x18, or 14x20. Board & Tape for paper Paints - I use Holbein (Cotman student grade is less expensive) Cad Red Light Cobalt Blue Cad Yellow Light Cerulean Blue Cad Yellow Medium Viridian Green Yellow Ochre Olive or Sap Greet Raw Umber Burnt Umber Cad Orange Burnt Sienna Cad Red Light Indigo Alizarine crimson or carmine Sepia Mineral Violet Quinacradome Gold (optional) Ultra Marine Blue Rose Violet (optional) Less expensive option (okay, especially for beginners): Yarka 10 pan set plus 1 tube each cerulean blue, sepia, and indigo. For tube paints – a folding palette such as Homee small, or small plastic folding palette with thumb hole – 18+ wells. Water container I use Kolinsky brushes. Round sizes 6, 8, 10, 12. If just one - #10 is most useful (black silver velvet) – must have good point. Synthetic brushes are okay with good point. Pencils #2B or 3B Tissue- no lotion Kneaded eraser sack lunch pocket knife Multi-media sketch book Ordering your Supplies online can be less costly. I recommend: Cheap Joes 1-800-227-2788 , their Dreamcatcher brushes are excellent, their Golden Flease brushes are good Jerry’s Artarama 1-800-827-8475
