Thursday Afternoon Watercolor Sessions - Online Class

For each class, I will have you send me an image of what you would like to work on and send a picture of your painting to that point. (Take a picture with your camera or phone download it to your computer to send in an email. Let me know if you have trouble with this and we will look into alternatives.) Also include in your email any questions you might have about the painting or the process. 

During the class time I will go through the images that were sent in and answer questions you and the other students have. The “class time” will be recorded so that even if you have to miss it, if you sent in your images and questions, I will cover them during the “class time.”

The class time sessions will be split between answering questions, helping with paintings and showing some demonstrations. There will be an assignment for each of you based on the photo reference you want to work on.  As not everyone is an independent worker, there will also be a video available each week for you to learn from if you choose to and want more direction.

Thursday Afternoon Watercolor Sessions - Week 2

November 26, 2020

(Coming soon) I have a second video of hay bales you can watch to see how I defind tree lines after both salt layer and sponged layers. There is more "pushing  and pulling as i define the grass (negative space) around the \hay bales (positve space).

The blue masking is still on this painting in the top of the foreground bushed and on leaves and the trunks of the tree on the right side.

Remember the colors of white are stronger than needed - so that you could see it in the webcam during the filming. Notice the pink-gray that was not distingushable in video. The green shows the dffference the negative space has in shaping the petals.

The following image is the cling wrap demo. and what it looked like when I took off the cling wrap. When I go to shape it with pushing/pulling, I may move the top of the mountain into the sky following the paths of lines from the cling wrap.

Painting Florals - Online Class

Floral art Class online

I will send out a link to a video with steps for a painting for the first class to work on before we get together the first time. Then, you will send me a picture of the painting you worked on from the video teaching and send any questions you might have about the painting or the process. You will also send me a picture that you would like to work on next before the “online class time.”

During the class time I will go through the images that were sent in and answer questions you and the other students have. The “class time” will be recorded so that even if you have to miss it, if you sent in your images and questions, I will cover them during the “class time.”

The class time sessions will be split between answering questions, helping with paintings and showing some demonstrations.

Extra video asters and rose leaves. The beginning of this video takes place during one of the plein air sessions from  September. I masked the petals and some of the lighter parts of the leaves. Then as I sat there in the field, I looked at the background. I used wet into wet, painting the grass colors and the colors of the rose petals, I threw on salt and did some scraping with the cut credit card triangle. The video begins when I started to work on it in my studio.

Painting Florals - Week 1

October 22, 2020

We will be doing this during the classtime today.

Good afternoon class. Today we will start by making water dirty.... take your fresh water and mix purple and reds on your palette to make really light colors, use lots of water and very little paint. As you rinse your brush between colors, you will see your water start to get some purple tones. Use this lightly colored water to do the first part of the video - laying in the outer petals.

 

Click on the video link below for the first steps in creating your colors for your Dahlia watercolor painting.

In class video.

The following Simple Flower Video is the one I shared in the class time video (which the sound didn't come through on the zoom program.)

 

 

 

Here is the image of the demos I did during the video. I am including a photo of each of those two flowers as well and below that is a photo reference for Shades of White and color mixing.
