Sexy Watercolors & Gouache
1-day Workshop :: March 17, 2018
with Jenny Doh

In this 1-day workshop, we will create many practice papers as we work with watercolors, graphite, ink, and gouache to first study values, then to use make final compositions that are sexy, experimental, and downright exciting ... the opposite of boring and dusty. Here's what you'll need to bring:

Supplies to bring to class:

PAINTS
o Gouache performs like watercolors but it is opaque rather than sheer. Gouache comes in tubes and you squeeze out a little at a time. Make sure to include 2 reds, 2 blues, 2 yellows, black, white, 1-2 browns, 1 green, 1 orange, 1 violet, and any other colors that you might be attracted. Holbein Acryla Gouache, and Windsor Newton Designer Gouache are my favorite brands of gouache
o Watercolors comes in tubes or pan sets. Unlike gouache, it goes on sheer, and also you can squeeze out watercolors into a little container and though it will dry, it can be reactivated with water. If you want a basic set in little pans, a set like like this one will be fine. If you want to get tubes, get 2 reds, 2 blues, black, white, 1-2 browns, 1 green, 1 orange, 1 violet and any other colors you like. My favorite brands are M. Graham & Co. Artists' Watercolors, Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors, and Holbein Artists' Watercolors.

• Black Stabilo pencil
• Regular pencil
• Masking tape 1.5 or 2 inch in width
• Watercolor postcards
• Raw wood panel (a 3-pack of 5x7 will be good)
• Pencil sharpener
• Watercolor Graphite
• Mixed Media Sketchbook (I carry the smaller 5.5 x 8.5 size that fits nicely in my backpack. That's my go-to size. Having a larger size for the studio is also a good idea.)
• Parallel pen size 6.0mm with the blue cap
• Watercolor Paintbrushes (Currently I like Golden Taklon brushes by Trekell. Size 10 is a good one to have.) 
• Acrylic Rulers (I have several sizes and having several is good if you are using small and large sketchbooks. For a smaller sketchbook, a 5x5 or 6 x6 inches would be good.)
• (Optional): Watercolor tin: Here's a cute little tin that you can use to squeeze out your watercolor tubes if you go that route. This is only for watercolor tubes, not gouache.
• Smart phone or ipad fully charged, with images that you want to reference for work.

SCHEDULE for BOTH DAYS:
  • Arrive & Settle: 9:00 :: Time for students to arrive, settle in.
  • Class Segment A: 9:30-12:00 :: Class time with Jenny who will demonstrate and guide the 1st part of class.
  • Lunch & Stroll: 12:00 PM :: You can choose to brown bag it or take a stroll to one of the many hip and artsy eateries in the historic Artist's Village in Santa Ana, like C4 Deli, Chapter One4th Street Market, Cafe Calacas, and The Gypsy Den.
  • Class Segment B: 1:30-4:30 PM :: Class time with Jenny who will guide the 2nd part of class.
  • Clean-Up & Depart: 4:30-5:00 PM

Channeling my inner @duane_keiser for this, my 600th painting. A little bit of my favorite French rosé (La Ferme Julien) in one of my wine glasses ... and hunting for shapes and colors. So fun.

Last year when Jeanne-Marie Webb came from South Africa to teach in my studio @studiocrescendoh in #santaana, she brought with her a beautiful plate that she made to give me. A beautiful plate. I've been wanting to paint it for some time and today when I was fiddling around with oranges, I placed them on that plate and it felt just right.

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you're the key to my peace of mind
'Cause you make me feel,
You make me feel,
You make me feel like
A natural woman
