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

207 N. Broadway Street, Studio L

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:

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.

  • Arrive & Settle: 9:00 :: Time for students to arrive, settle in.
