Two Tube Watercolor Painting Series: #5 Cyan + Scarlet taught by Jinjer Markley

Virtual Event

March 29, 2021 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm CDT


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 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!

#5: Cyan and Scarlet
This class will have a focus on the technical aspects of analyzing tone, light and shadow in an image. The demonstrated sample image will use photo reference and a variety of painting techniques

Students will need, for each 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.
• Two tubes of watercolor paint! Each class will focus on a specific color combination, so use the following list to determine which colors you should buy. Any brand professional grade watercolor.
