No class tomorrow….snow, snow, snow 😉
We will have class on Friday….if you plan on coming to the Friday class please let me know via email email@example.com

Looks like we may have a major snowstorm coming our way this Thursday 🙂
I will post tomorrow if we have to move our Thursday class to Friday….
Wednesday (tomorrow) we will have class as usual….
Please bring your color charts and a subject of your choice to work on.
There is now a place for us to park near the main house!!!!! You can now come in through the iron gates and park in the new parking lot across from the Veteran’s Museum 🙂
Happy day!!!!! No cars are allowed to park on the circle in front of the house now that we have a proper parking lot 🙂
See you all soon….
We had a great color workshop in January and I have decided this it is well worth going over with my more advanced students and students who are bringing watercolors. I’m reposting supplies needed for the first Wednesday class this week Most of you have these supplies but if your missing some colors required I’m happy to share a squish from my paints. Be sure to bring several sheets of hot press watercolor paper, 140lb. and a minimum size of 11×14.
Your color list is : Cadmium Red, Quinacridone Rose, Cadmium Yellow, Azo Yellow (or lemon yellow), Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Paynes Grey, Raw Sienna (yellow ochre), and Burnt Sienna. Please do not by student grade paints the are weak in color and full of fillers. Favorite brands are M. Graham, Schmincke, Holbein and Windsor Newton (professional grade). If your buying paints please buy professional grade the cheaper grades are not worth the money 🙂
Bring your watercolor brush size (#6 or #8) 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/
If you need a paint box/pallet to organize your paints and mix your colors the Mijello is an easy pallet is to carry in your supply bag.
Mijello Fusion Airtight/Leakproof Palettes
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 🙂 Tiny water contains get dirty quickly and will muddy your colors.
Get ready for some fun!
Please email me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much for braving the snow today and coming to class! So nice to see everyone in the New Year 🙂
Here’s the video I promised of the artist Alek Krylow doing color charts…enjoy 🙂

Hope to see you all there 🙂
Please check your email in the morning to confirm if we have class or not. If the weather prevents class we will start next Saturday and then the following two Saturdays.
I’ll post an update by 8am 🙂
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 🙂
Color puddles 🙂
Looking forward to class today and Saturday 🙂
Hope the January weather gods smile on us 🌤
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.
