Each student will need to bring the following materials:
Quinacridone Gold – Daniel Smith
Quinacridone Rose – Daniel Smith
Cobalt Blue - Winsor & Newton or Daniel Smith
Antwerp Blue – Winsor & Newton
Lamp Black – Winsor & Newton
Adjustable nozzle Spray Bottle - Make
sure you can spray and get big drops
Butcher Tray Palette (I use an 11" X 15") We
will be using BIG brushes.
Backing Board/Gator Board (large enough for ½ sheet) We
will be painting 22" X 16".
Tape rolls or something to raise your board at least
Brushes: 2"or 3" Hake Brush, #12 Round, 1 ½" Flat Brush, #8 Round with good point tip, a stiff bristle ¼" or ½" flat brushMasking Fluid (I use Pebeo drawing gum) It can be dried with a hair dryer and lifts easily from your
Towels and Kleenex tissue
Watercolor Paper (I always use Fabriano Artistico bright white 140 lb.) It has the greatest "lifting" capability than any other paper I’ve tried. If you don’t have it, bring a good quality 140 lb. watercolor paper. We will use 2-3 sheets.Pencils (HB or #2 hardness)A good soft eraser
Transfer paper (wax-free) Can be found at A.C. Moore or through most art supply outlets on the internet. This can be shared between students/each sheet can be used several times. I get mine from Dick Blick – Sally’s wax free Graphite Paper
Bring any photos you may want to work on in
the future if you would like to discuss composition ideas for
that portrait. The last day of class, bring in a painting you’ve
worked on to discuss how this approach might improve it or just
if you would like to receive some input on your work.
I look forward to seeing you there!
