Watercoloring Water: Plein Air
July 29, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$50
Living in the Puget Sound offers excellent opportunities to paint at the waterfront – not only peaceful locations to paint, the Sound gives us a challenge: how do we create ripples, reflections, and transparency?
Join Sandy Allnock for a one-day socially-distanced workshop at Alki. Masks are mandatory. Weather permitting and Covid conditions permitting of course – since payment will be brought to the event, it won’t be collected if it rains. This will happen on a Wednesday to avoid the crowds close to a weekend.
- Your own selection of watercolors; demonstrations will be done using the instructor’s palette and brushes (see it on the supplies page) but if you have a selection of the following, you’ll be just fine: Your favorite greens, water and sky blues, a paynes grey or bluegrey (or other neutral), and a burnt sienna. And any other favorite colors!
- Palette (metal is recommended) or butcher tray
- Brushes: round brushes, 12 or greater size; wide flat brush (1-1/2 or 2″).
- Watercolor paper: Arches or Saunders Waterford 140lb, cold press or rough. Blocks ok. Recommended: bring a sheet already divided into quarter sheets, mounted on Gator or other board (12″ x 16″ or bigger). Not recommended: student grade paper or sketchbooks.
- Small towel or household sponge, absorbent paper towels, baby wipes
- Large water container
- Spray bottle
- Pencil, soft eraser
- Don’t forget to pack a lunch!
