Watercolor Workshop :O)

Looking forward to tomorrow.

Creating color charts are the best answer to the eternal question “How do I find that color?”

By creating your own charts you forever have a reference when the colors elude you.

Starting a color chart of 9 colors….a good place to begin 🙂

Just to remind everyone we will be meeting at Muscoot Farm in the Activities Building.  Today class will be from noon – 3pm and Saturday Workshop will be from 10-1pm.

Watercolor Workshop❄️⛄❄️

For those of you attending the Saturday morning watercolor workshop this January please be sure to bring several sheets of hot press watercolor paper, 140lb. and a minimum size of 11×14. Bring one watercolor brush of decent size (#8 or #10) along with your other brushes.  A dependable and reasonably priced brush is made by the Princeton Brush Company and they are currently on sale at Dick Blick  http://www.dickblick.com/products/princeton-series-4050-best-synthetic-sable/

Please bring all your  watercolor supplies.  We will be working with a limited pallet but the exercises we will do can expand to your other colors as well.  Be sure to bring a decent size water container so your water doesn’t get muddy to quickly and paper towels.  A 16oz. plastic deli container works well 🙂

The first day we will be working mainly with color charts and learning about what your colors will do when mixed together.  We will then move in to color matching as the workshop continues 🙂

Please email me with any questions lauragould@mac.com

Watercolor Workshop

Need a review on mixing watercolors and polishing you technique….come and join us on Saturday mornings January 14th, 21st and 28th at from 10am-1pm.  Each Saturday we will pick a new color subject…red, green and yellow. We will concentrate on doing color studies and finding the color your searching for using a limited pallet.  We will also polish up the use of washes, drop in color and dry brush.

Color pencil students are also welcome…..sometimes you can’t find the right color and need to combine many colors to achieve the color you looking for….

The rules of color apply to both wet and dry  🙂

Three day workshop – $150.00
