Watercolor Basics:

Four Elements of Successful Painting

 Materials List

Any of these materials are easy to find online at Dots ‘N Doodles Art Supplies – Astoria Or 503-325-5081

Paper: 140# Cold Press paper  – This can be any 100% rag or cotton paper, such as Arches, Fabriano, or Fluid 100 (100% Cotton paper)  You can buy it in full sheets (22” x 30”) or in blocks or pads.  For this class I recommend either 2 full sheets, (which we will tear into smaller sizes for the various exercises and paintings), OR a block or pad that is 9” x 12”.

Sketch book: Bring your favorite sketchbook, to use for thumb nail sketches and planning ideas

Brushes: Bring any watercolor brushes you already have. Synthetic brushes are the least expensive, and you should get the best you can afford.  Pure sable brushes are the best, but are the most expensive. No 12 round, No 8 round, No 4 round, 1″ flat, 1/2″ flat (optional)

Paint: Bring any transparent watercolor paints that you have (NOT Gouache or Acrylic). The minimum suggested palette would consist of the following (examples in parentheses):

1 Yellow           (Aureolin OR Hansa Yellow, Cadmium Yellow OR New Gamboge)

1-2 Reds          (Cadmium Red OR Pyrrol Red & Permanent Alizarin Crimson OR Carmine,)

1 Blue              (French Ultramarine, Cobalt Blue, Prussian Blue)

1 Green           (Winsor Green, Pthalo Green, Sap Green)

1 Brown           (Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Sepia)

1 Black (          Ivory Black, Payne’s Gray, or Neutral Tint)

If you want to buy new watercolors, I recommend using M.Graham, or Daniel Smith.   My minimum suggested palette for the beginner is:

French Ultramarine Blue

Burnt Sienna

Aureolin (Yellow) Or Hansa Yellow

Cadmium Red OR Pyrrol Red

Permanent Alizarin Crimson OR Carmine

Winsor Green (Yellow Shade) OR Sap Green

Payne’s Gray

This palette of colors will allow you to mix some nice oranges, greens, purples, and grays.

Other Supplies:

Palette: to put your paint on, and mix colors.  I recommend a plastic folding palette.

HB Pencil

Kneaded eraser

2 plastic water containers (for example: empty yogurt containers)

Paper towels

Masking tape

Small spray bottle

 

Photographs and Still Life Material

Throughout this class we will be working from either life or from photographs.  The choice is up to you, but remember to keep things simple if you are a beginning student.  This class will focus on organic subject matter, so think about photos of flowers, birds, mushrooms, trees, simple landscapes, etc.  If you want to paint from life you will set up objects in front of you to paint from.  Fruit, sea shells, simple flowers in a vase, tea pots, pottery, etc are good things to make a still life from.

Twining Texture: A Natural Fiber Basket @ Hoffman Center for the Arts – Manzanita, Oregon
Sep 9 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Visual Arts Workshop

Twining Texture: A Natural Fiber Basket

with Kathleen Kanas

September 9-10 | 10:00am-2:00pm

Tuition $125 | Materials fee $25

Hoffman Center for the Arts – Manzanita, Oregon

Twining Texture: A Natural Fiber Basket

Twining Participants will use the technique of twining to weave a basket using a variety of
highly textural natural materials. Start to finish, guided by visual samples and
instructor tips, twining fibers with design in mind will be emphasized. Completed
baskets will measure approximately 7” high, with a 7” base and circumference of
28”- 30”. Weaving with natural materials that have irregularities can be challenging
but results are exciting. The first day will cover the basics of twining, understanding
the first steps to construction, and completing the base and starting the upturned
sides. Day two is a continuation of the sides developing the patterns and finishing
off with a fringed rim. Embellishing the basket with special touches such as pods,
beads, or other special objects can be applied as a final step.

About the Artist

It began when a grade school art activity turned out to be a life-long creative
experience. I have been weaving baskets for over fifty-five years and still find great
satisfaction in the process and outcome. There was an earlier time when few
references related to basket weaving existed, and I relied on trial and error as I
explored which types of plant materials could be woven, coiled, or twined. In later
years, when I needed further instruction, I found myself in workshops led by
notables such as Frances James, Anna Jefferson, Bruce Miller and Margaret
Matthewson. From rattan to roots to bark to kelp, nature has provided an amazing
number of fibers that I incorporate in my work to create utilitarian containers with
specific uses to some that are purely sculptural forms.
