$ 150  

This whimsical painting is all about creating an interesting background. The step by step instruction allows all painters to complete a successful painting. We will be using a wet into wet technique to create the under painting and then carving out geometric shapes in the background. Each time I paint this piece it turns out a little different and that is a good thing. Yours will be your own unique piece of art. I expect most paintings to be about 80% completed in class.

Students to bring:
• Your usual painting supplies which should include at least 2 water containers, paper towels, pop up tissues, 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 a 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.
• Pencil and ruler
• White watercolor pencil
• Hair dryer is helpful, but not necessary
• Soft rag, about the size of a hand towel
 

Materials included in $25 supply fee paid to instructor at beginning of class
• Written instructions and color photo
• Arches 140 lb cold press watercolor paper (10” x 11”) with traced design on it
• Mijello Mission Gold paints used in this painting
• Moo Eraser
• Foam plate/pallet for watercolor paint
• Use of rubber stamps and misc. supplies
