Academy members CLICK HERE to share the progress of your art and get feedback in the Community Forum.

Level of Difficulty: Advanced

Drawing: I show you how to draw the composition at the beginning of Day 1 workshop replay!

Workspace: I recommend painting on 8"x 10" 300 lb hot press paper or stretching 140 lb prior to the workshop. (Details on how to stretch watercolor paper can be found here.)

Colors I plan to use:

  • Cadmium Lemon Yellow
  • New Gamboge
  • Phthalo Blue
  • Opera Rose
  • Hooker's Green
  • Payne's Gray

I use Winsor & Newton watercolor paints, but you don't have to. You can substitute the colors above for similar colors in your palette. They don't have to be the same colors.

Tools & Materials:

  • Paper for sketching
  • Pencil & eraser
  • Round brushes (I plan to use size: 2,4, 6, 10)
  • Scrap Paper
  • Paper towels

HEPFUL TIPS: I teach the foundation to drawing in: The Fundamentals of Drawing course. The skills taught in this course prepare you for drawing your designs in the live workshops.

I also teach the foundation to watercolors in: Watercolor Painting for Beginners course, which also prepares you for painting in the live workshops. Check out this course to learn how to set up your workspace, prep your paper, and familiarize yourself with the different watercolor techniques.
