    Spring is a wonderful time of year when the landscape comes alive. The colors of spring are when the trees and bushes start to turn a bright yellow green, and crocuses, violets, and forsythia are among some of the flowers that begin to bloom, using blues and violets, reds and yellows.

    To the artist, it's a palette of color explosion to paint and we immediately think of what paint colors to mix and the techniques to capture these vibrant colors.

    Drawing is important to plan the design and composition using a sketch book, then the real fun begins when we put the drawing on paper and begin to paint.

    Come join me on this art adventure of learning to paint spring by learning the following:

    • Watercolor Design and Composition Techniques
    • Mixing paint to create the colors of spring
    • Consistency of the paint mixture, how much water to add to pigment
    • Shapes , both positive and negative , keeping these shapes interesting
    • Values , the value scale from the lightest to darkest values

    Materials List

    • Watercolor paint I use (warm (W), cool (C)):

    W - cadmium yellow, C - lemon yellow, W - cadmium red,  C - alizarin crimson, W - cerulean blue, C - ultramarine blue or cobalt blue.

    These are primary split palette colors using two yellows, two reds and two blues in a warm and cool of each color.

    Additional colors I use :

    W - yellow ochre or raw sienna, W - burnt sienna,  sap green, hookers green,  violet but I like mixing my own.

    • Good watercolor paper such as Arches, 140 lb. cold press
    • A board or something to tape your paper to or use a watercolor block (Arches or Canson Aquarelle) 
    • Brushes: round brush #4, 6; flat chisel edge brushes 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch
    • Old jar or Cool Whip container to hold water
    • Paper towels 
    • Photo references for you to choose the subject material you will be painting. We will be doing subjects of Spring in Bloom. Suggested subjects: trees in a landscape with a stream, a barn, house with garden of flowers, spring flowers, etc.

    Barry teaches watercolor painting techniques. He says:

    Of course our class will center on the usual, with Composition, Values and Color usage being dominate.... purpose being, to create "art" not just a copy of a photo but also with a little excursion into just where watercolor excels and the dirty little  secret that very few water-colorists ever talk about and that is when doing a painting in watercolor is going to make you "work really, really hard" ......in other words,  you're probably not going to have a happy day at the easel.  We will take that on along with a quick color test of students pigments (as well as mine) and any other issues the students may bring up.  We will have fun as usual!!

    Students should bring at least three photo references or sketches of their choosing. Their own favorite watercolor supplies including a box of pop up Kleenex. Working surface should be at least 140lb watercolor paper....nothing less. Subject of the class will be my usual "emphasis on composition and values use with individual instruction for each student"

    Maximum class size: 16
    Minimum class size: 10

    To the artist, it's a palette of color explosion to paint and we immediately think of what paint colors to mix and the techniques to capture these vibrant colors.

    Drawing is important to plan the design and composition using a sketch book, then the real fun begins when we put the drawing on paper and begin to paint.

    Come join me on this art adventure of learning to paint spring by learning the following:

    • Watercolor Design and Composition Techniques
    • Mixing paint to create the colors of spring
    • Consistency of the paint mixture, how much water to add to pigment
    • Shapes , both positive and negative , keeping these shapes interesting
    • Values , the value scale from the lightest to darkest values

    Materials List

    • Watercolor paint I use (warm (W), cool (C)):

    W - cadmium yellow, C - lemon yellow, W - cadmium red,  C - alizarin crimson, W - cerulean blue, C - ultramarine blue or cobalt blue.

    These are primary split palette colors using two yellows, two reds and two blues in a warm and cool of each color.

    Additional colors I use :

    W - yellow ochre or raw sienna, W - burnt sienna,  sap green, hookers green,  violet but I like mixing my own.

    • Good watercolor paper such as Arches, 140 lb. cold press
    • A board or something to tape your paper to or use a watercolor block (Arches or Canson Aquarelle) 
    • Brushes: round brush #4, 6; flat chisel edge brushes 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch
    • Old jar or Cool Whip container to hold water
    • Paper towels 
    • Photo references for you to choose the subject material you will be painting. We will be doing subjects of Spring in Bloom. Suggested subjects: trees in a landscape with a stream, a barn, house with garden of flowers, spring flowers, etc.

    This Watercolor Workshop is a casual class, all questions are welcome. Learn techniques in Watercolor; getting the maximum use of your brushes 

    This class is geared for students interested in learning the wonderful world of watercolor. Some drawing ability preferred, for beginners to intermediate painters.

    Maximum class size: 16
    Minimum class size: 4
