Explore new techniques and methods to expand your repertoire in flower painting. This class will include demonstrations with lots of time to apply what you’ve learned to your own painting. You will learn to incorporate pattern and texture along with the tools you need to paint a variety of flowers. Fresh plants and references will be supplied to inspire you!

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 yucky old round brush for masking fluid, spray bottle
