Fall Colors: Glazing & Masking with Watercolor with Maria Coryell-Martin, October 11-12

Fall Colors: Glazing & Masking with Watercolor with Maria Coryell-Martin, October 11-12



Join expeditionary artist Maria Coryell-Martin to explore the fall colors of Fort Wooden and experiment with glazing and masking with watercolor. On day one we will focus on developing color palettes and sketching ideas, followed by creating studio paintings using layers of textured color on day two. Maria will provide paper for our studio explorations, as well as a custom palette with fall colors, and masking supplies. All levels welcome!

Warm Layers: jacket and sun protection. We may spend time outside.

Sit pad (optional)

Sketchbook: minimum of 80lb for light watercolor/mixed-media use

Brushes: Waterbrushes such as Pentel or Niji are convenient for sketchbooks. Choose a 2-3 high quality synthetic (such as Princeton 4050 series) or a natural hair brushes with at least one flat (3/4” or 1” wide for washes) and one medium round (such as #8). Choose quality over quantity for brushes!

Watercolors: Bring your favorite palette. If you are starting out, choose artist quality paints with at least a yellow, red, magenta, blue, cyan, and neutral brown. If you are starting out, I recommend the Daniel Smith Essential 6 watercolor set which includes Hansa Yellow Light, New Gamboge, Quinacridone Rose, Pyroll Red, French Ultramarine, and Phthalo Blue (GS). Additional favorite colors of mine include Indanthrone Blue, Cerulean Blue Chromium, Deep Scarlet, Quinacridone Gold, Lunar Earth, and Sepia.

Portable Palette: If you are starting out, choose a compact folding palette with mixing surface. I use the Pocket Palette for small sketches and a larger folding palette for more involved studies.

Other items: Water container, paper towels, H pencil, sharpener, gum eraser, plastic eraser, 2x binder clips, spray bottle, and optional sponge and old toothbrush.
