Watercolor Painting - Intermediate


Adult Enrichment / Art -
Winter/Spring 2024

If you have some experience with watercolor, join this class to develop your skills. Please note that this is not a beginner class. Some skills you should have before taking this class are knowing the wetness and dryness of the media, how to mix basic colors, and understanding basic perspective principals. You will learn techniques, see demonstrations, receive guided instruction, and participate in a class critique. Each week we will work on a different topic. Purchase a copy of John Shaw and Ferdinand Petrie's "The Big Book of Painting Nature in Watercolor" prior to class.

Materials Needed:

  • Pad of 140 lb watercolor paper 11x15 (this can be Strathmore or Arches - avoid Canson paper - do not get a block of paper, this is too expensive)
  • Board to put them on
  • 1 multi-compartment palette or tray
  • 1 roll of better quality paper towels
  • 1 #2 pencil
  • 1 art gum eraser
  • 1 roll of masking tape
  • 1 bottle mask-off any color
  • 1 lightweight pair of scissors
  • 1 ruler at least 18 inches long
  • Graphite copy paper
  • 1 set of good quality tube-style watercolors. Set should include a crimson red (naphthol or alizarin), cadmium red light, ultramarine, cadmium yellow, lemon yellow, raw sienna, purple or violet, sap green or olive green, payne's grey, and cerulean blue. Some colors may need to be purchased separately.
  • Brushes - Size 10 and 12 round brush, 1 flat brush size 1/4" or 1/2" wide, and 1 large brush 3/4" or wider
  • A cup for water
  • Optional: a small misting bottle (an old hairspray bottle works well)
