About the Event

Come join me and watercolour enthusiasts from around the world on Friday May 29th 2020 as I take you step by step through a live online watercolour tutorial. Viewers can watch, or join in and replicate the steps while I explain some basic watercolour techniques, tips and recommendations. 

Cost: £10.00

Duration: 120 Minutes

Platform: Zoom (Private Stream)

30mins - Technique Lesson: Sketching and Planning a Portrait

90mins - Subject Painting: Portrait

If you'd like to join in, here are some items you'll need:

Paper -  

36x28cm, I recommend a cotton based paper, 300gsm - personally I prefer Saunders Waterford, Arches, Fabriano or even Bockingford. I use masking tape to keep it still on a board, which also leave a clean, crisp border once removed.

Brushes

Medium/Large Mop Brush - perfect for big areas such as sky and foregrond. Squirell hair is best as it holds the most water.

Medium Synthetic Brush - something with a fine point for medium sized areas and smaller details 

Rigger Brush - a longer thin brush, perfect for branches, railings and long thin lines

Paint

Chinese White

Ivory Black

Neutral Tint

Grey of Grey (opaque)

Cobalt Blue

Cadmium Yellow

Cadmium Red

Burnt Sienna

Raw Umber

Vandyke Brown

Sap Green

Horizon Blue (opaque)

I personally use Holbein Watercolour paints

Other Equipment

Water Pot - I usually use two, one to wash pigment out of a brush, a 2nd to load up with clean water

Atomiser - a fine mist water spray

Tissue - helps to dry a brush if needed, mop up drips

Hairdryer - to speed up the drying process

Pencil - for preliminary sketch

Palette - with several large wells  to ensure enough space for mixing
