Watercolor Workshop: Spectacular Edges in Landscapes CANCELED

May 15, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm


Much of what makes us happy with our watercolor paintings is in the edges – soft blends, drybrush strokes, and the variety in between. To create these differences, the amount of pigment vs water are crucial – and artists spend a lifetime figuring it out!

Spend a day with Sandy Allnock in learning some tricks and techniques to achieve cloudy skies, soft stands of trees, and mountains that disappear into the heavens!


  • Your own selection of watercolors; the instructor will demonstrate using her palette and brushes (see it on her supplies page) but if you have a selection of the following, you’ll be just fine: Your favorite greens, sky blues, a paynes grey or bluegrey (or other neutral), and a burnt sienna. And any other favorite colors!
  • Brushes: round brushes, 12 or greater size; wide flat brush (1-1/2 or 2″).
  • Watercolor paper – per day: a full sheet of Arches or Saunders Waterford 140lb, cold press or rough. Blocks ok. Not recommended: student grade paper or sketchbooks.
  • Palette (metal is recommended) or butcher tray
  • Gator or other board (12″ x 16″ or bigger) to support paintings, and something to prop the board at an angle.
  • Artist masking tape 1” to attach paper to your board
  • Small towel or household sponge, absorbent paper towels, baby wipes
  • Large water container
  • Spray bottle
  • Pencil, soft eraser
  • Printed photos will be provided, or bring a few photos you’d like to try. Wide landscapes, bring easy and hard subjects so you have options.
  • Don’t forget to pack a lunch!

The workshop begins at 10:30am each day (the store opens at 10) and ends at 4:30pm each day.
