Virtual Event Virtual Event

March 1, 2021 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm CST


A limited color palette is a sure way to make a stylish, cohesive, harmonious painting, regardless of what style you use. You will be very surprised to discover how many different colors you can mix up using only two tubes of paint!
This hour-long Live Zoom class includes instruction, demonstration, and question + answer time. It will prepare you to paint a color reference sheet to beautifully illustrate the colors achievable with two tubes of watercolor paint, while getting hands-on practice in Munsell Color Theory. After the live class has ended, you’ll be ready to paint a simple subject from still-life or reference, with a focus on design, light and shadow.
Two tube watercolor painting series of classes is intended for students with some painting experience. Each class in the series focuses on a different color combination. Take the whole series if you want a great excuse to get to know more colors or go deeper into limited-color-palette painting!

#3: Purple and Lemon
This class will have a focus on creating a two color palette for portraiture. The demonstrated sample images will walk you through the preparation process for painting a simple but recognizable portrait.

You are not expected to paint along during the hour of class. The pacing for this class is designed as more of a watch +learn style class.

• Students will need at least three sheets of good-quality watercolor paper, at least 8” x10”. I recommend Stonehenge Aqua or Hahnemuhle Cezanne -Cold Press, 140 lb.
• Palettes (at least one 10-12 well palette)
• Water, jars, rags, etc.
• A variety of watercolor brushes. At a minimum, I recommend: • Size 3-4 round • Size 6-9 round
• A blow-dryer might come in handy, so if you have one, please bring it!
• Printouts of the attached reference documents. (sent to registered students)
• A phone or tablet with an app that can turn photographs black and white. I recommend BlackCam by XnView. Your iPhone has this feature built in.
