Workshop Overview

Enjoy a delightful day putting color theory into practice by painting a beautiful white rose with watercolor. With step-by-step instruction learn how to mix luminous shadows, earthy dark greens and yellow/greens, and how to create the dramatic glow of sunlight with value, contrast, glazing, and soft or hard edges.

Materials List: Students Bring


• Watercolors: Cobalt Blue, Permanent Rose, Winsor Red or Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Aureolin or bright yellow, Daniel Smith New Gamboge* (*old formula Winsor Newton New Gamboge is okay, new formula in silver tubes is different and not okay because it is not as bright), Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, and Winsor Green or Thalo Green or Hooker’s Green.

• 1 piece Arches 140# cold pressed watercolor paper cut to 8 ½” x 11” size taped to a backing board. Transfer the rose drawing with Saral WAX-FREE GRAPHITE transfer paper before coming to the workshop. (The rose drawing and transferring instructions will be sent to you prior to the workshop.)

• A few scraps of watercolor paper for color testing and brush practice.

• Winsor Newton Masking fluid (TIP: if your masking fluid is old, it may not rub off easily – it is best to buy new. Do not buy Permanent Masking fluid since it will not rub off - check labels)

• Large eyed sewing needle stuck in a wine cork (used to apply small lines of masking fluid) or stylus or toothpick

• Inexpensive brush to apply masking fluid

• Small bar of soap to protect brush from masking fluid

• Palette and large mixing surface (like the lid of your palette OR a butcher tray OR a slant palette OR white plastic plates)

• 2 water containers

• Watercolor brushes: ½” flat and rounds

• Paper towels and facial tissues (avoid “ultra-soft” tissue because of lotion; doesn’t work with watercolor)

• Removable adhesive putty for lifting pencil lines (for hanging posters). Patricia likes “Uhu” brand at art stores

• Red or blue pen

• Pencil

• White plastic eraser

Materials List Provided by Instructor(s)

• Rose photo

• Step-by-step techniques handout

• Rose drawing (The rose drawing for our practice painting and transferring instructions will be sent to you so the drawing can be transferred to your watercolor paper before coming to the workshop.)
