This painting starts with a colorful, textural background. Hills are created with negative painting. Optional trees are added with watercolor and rubber stamps. No previous watercolor experience is necessary. All levels of painters will complete a successful painting using the step by step directions. No drawing experience is necessary. The student will complete two 11” x 15” underpaintings and complete at least one painting in class. The paintings can be torn into smaller, narrow paintings to fit that perfect spot in your home!

Students to bring: • Your usual painting supplies which should include at least 2 water containers, paper towels, a fine mist spray bottle for water. • Brushes: You may use your regular watercolor brushes. I use Scharff 960 Aqua Flow Super Round, Scharff #310 White Nylon round brushes sizes #8 and #4 and variety of scrubby brushes (Scharff Moon #222 brushes sizes #2, #4, #6, used for corrections and lifting off paint.) (I will have Scharff brushes for purchase if you choose. • Scissors • A box of pop up tissues is necessary (like an inexpensive brand of Kleenex) • Hair dryer is helpful, but not necessary
