$ 150  

The underpainting of this painting is created with traditional watercolor and then collage is added to cover the entire piece and to create texture. No two paintings turn out the same, and that is a good thing. All levels of painters will complete a successful painting using the step by step instruction. No drawing experience is necessary. The student will complete a 11” x 15” in class.   

Students Need 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
• 1 inch flat brush to apply the paste to the collage
• A box of pop up tissues is necessary (like an inexpensive brand of Kleenex)
• Hair dryer is helpful, but not necessary
• Board to support your painting
• Optional- decorative napkins in blue and brown colors to share.
  

$23 Supply fee paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

• Written instructions and color photos

• 11” x 15” Arches 140 lb. Cold Press watercolor paper with the line drawing traced on it
