Shiny Rustic | Texture and Reflection
Each student will need to bring the following materials:
Paint colors: 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 2″.
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 brush Masking Fluid (I use Pebeo drawing gum) It can be dried with a hair dryer and lifts easily from your paper.
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!
