This joyful painting is all about creating a colorful and interesting background. The step by step instruction allows painters of all levels to complete a successful painting. We will be using a wet into wet technique to create the under painting and then proceed to 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.
 

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:

• Written instructions and color photo
• Arches 140 lb cold press watercolor paper (15” 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

 

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

• 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
• Board or plastic support for your 11” x 15” watercolor painting
• Hair dryer is helpful, but not necessary
• Soft rag, about the size of a hand towel
