We will cover all basic techniques for applying watercolour, from wet into wet, layered washes, dry brushing, glazing, and wax resist.
We will cover all basic techniques for applying watercolour, from wet into wet, layered washes, dry brushing, glazing, and wax resist. We will look at colour mixing and “palette craft”, develop observational skills through still life painting and more free and expressive painting through landscape. Do not buy any materials until your course is confirmed as running.
There are two kinds of watercolour paint: tubes and tablet form or “pans”. It is personal preference really: tubes are much easier to work with when starting out although pans are more practical if you want to go outside and paint in the landscape as they come in a compact box and the lid doubles up as a palette.
Buy a middle grade range of paints such as Daler Rowney Georgian range or Winsor and Newton Cotman range. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a ready-made starter set but if you are buying them individually then the following colours are recommended:
Cadmium yellow light
Cadmium red hue, (not cadmium red deep)
Viridian green, or Phthalo Green
Also useful: Phthalo Blue (or Windsor Blue Green shade), Yellow Ochre
You do not need black or white paint!
Paper: Weight 140lb /300gsm Texture rough.
Middle range such as Daler Rowney Langton rough
Brushes: There are three varieties: Nylon, Sable/synthetic blend, and pure Sable. Prices go up accordingly, A Daler Rowney Nylon is ok to start with, but Sable is lovely and lasts a lifetime, the blended brush is a good compromise.
Two brushes a big and a small one: A number 10 and a number 2.
An HB pencil and a soft rubber.
