Workshop – Supply List
For the afternoon work shop the attendees will need to bring their own subject to paint. Subject could be figurative, portrait, landscape, cityscape…whatever. I try to paint them all but abstracts…. not so much.
They can start a painting from the beginning or paint on something they have already been working on. If starting a new painting it would be best if they already have their drawing transferred to the paper.
Paper: For the workshop bring professional quality paper: Arches 140lb. cold press or rough is what Bill uses. Have drawing already transferred before workshop.
Paints: Tube Watercolor preferred, all brands, professional grade but student grade okay.
- Cadmium Red or Scarlet Lake for our skin tones
- Alizarin Crimson for our skin tones
- Cad yellow and or Yellow ochre or Raw Sienna for skin tones
- Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Peacock Blue (Holbein) to “temper” our skin tones
- Burnt Sienna to mix with Ultramarine for our “blacks”.
Brushes: At least 1 large brush (#12 or bigger) and a smaller detail brush.
I will have a lot of my own brushes with me, I’m happy to lend out.
