Celebrate the end of year bounty with fabulous fall and winter fruits. Learn to paint fruits, inside and out, through drawing and painting. Study the form, tone, and texture through drawing. Learn color mixing and painting techniques to complete a painting of your subject.
Sketch/drawing pad (9×12 or greater) white, spiral, or what you prefer
Drawing pencils of choice
Eraser (white plastic)
Tracing paper (if you have it)
White, hot press watercolor paper (140 lb or greater)
Watercolor paints- bring your usual palette*
Watercolor brushes (two size 4 or 6 pointed round)*
Cup or jar for water
Foam board (a size larger than your sketch pad)
*If you are a beginner, or don’t have the proper brushes, or can’t get the materials listed in time, don’t panic. Bring what you can. I can fill in with enough to get you going.
Hot press watercolor paper is not typically available at chain art supply stores. Fine art stores sometimes sell it by the sheet. It is expensive, as paper goes, so I will have it available for $3 per quarter sheet (approx. 10x15in). Good sable brushes are best, but also expensive. I will have a few for borrowing and some new brushes (size 4) at $10 each, if you wish to purchase.
