Reflections are key to making a painting atmospheric. Translating images and objects into reflections can be fun and easy if you know the trick! Take this workshop and learn how to make those water scenes come alive. References will be provided; just bring your supplies and an open mind.
Supplies to bring:
1 sheet 140 lb. Arches or Fabriano Artistico cold press watercolor paper (We’ll be dividing it into fourths.)
1 tube each color listed below of artist grade paint – I recommend Winsor Newton, or Daniel Smith. Please, no student grade paints. The following colors are recommended, but if you have others that are your favorites, stick to them. You will need a cool and a warm of each of the primary colors:
French Ultramarine, (cool)
Manganese blue or Cerulean, (warm)
Idanthrone blue or Prussian blue (dark)
Lemon Yellow or Hansa Yellow, (cool)
New Gamboge, (warm)
Quinacridone gold (dark)
Quinacridone Rose (cool)
Vermillon or Scarlet Lake (warm)
Perylene Maroon or Alizarin Crimson (dark)
Optional: Olive green, Moonglow
A #4 round or equivalent small brush, #8 round brush or equivalent medium brush - preferably a blend of synthetic and natural. Brushes will be your most expensive purchase, but good brushes will last and make a better painting. Check out the Mimik Kolinsky brushes and the Black Velvet brushes. If you are unsure, get a salesperson to help you with this.
A 1” (or larger) flat brush – You can find this in Mimik Kolinsky as well.
Palette and/or mixing tray. Not the little egg dishes; they don’t have enough room to make good puddles.
Eraser (The Vanish Eraser is a good one).
Container for water – nothing smaller than a large yogurt container
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Small container of salt
A roll of paper towels
Optional: Watercolor pencils, masking fluid, a masking fluid applicator or yukky old round brush for masking fluid, spray bottle
