Watercolors is one of my favourite mediums and I look forward to doing this with you. We will cover foundational techniques that will help to control the watercolor medium and various watercolor techniques that are used to complete a painting.

Please bring with you:

Watercolor paint or Watercolor Pencils

Paint brushes

Watercolor Paper or Pad

Eraser

Rag

Palatte

Container for water

A snack in case we get hungry :)

I will update on the location once we know how many we are. It will be in the general area around Northville. Please email me if you have any questions about the materials or location.

    I was pleasantly surprised that I was inspired to do great work. Who said watercolor was hard? I think it's easier than acrylic. Can't wait for the next class.

    What is your recommendation for buying watercolors for a beginner? I don't want to invest too much. Also, what array of brushes do I need?

      Tracy, it is best to get a watercolor set with lots of colors for beginning. Michaels has inexpensive paint sets. They also have the brushes. You can use synthetic watercolor brushes to begin also. WC brushes are soft vs. firm bristles. Michaels staff will help you select about 3-5 different size brushes. Going to an art supply store would be a good meet-up Gopa for those who want to start painting or other types of fine arts work. Those who have experience mixed with beginners could benefit us all. :)
