Want to turn an ordinary watercolor still life into something special? Students will work with some of their own objects while creating a painting using contrast, detail, texture and light. You will also learn tips on creating a balanced and interesting subject arrangement, which you will be able to apply to future subjects.

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 sales person 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.

HB pencil

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
