Watercolour Poetry! 
Winter is coming to an end soon, and it is time to paint images of new growth in the garden with artist and illustrator Susan Pearson. This 6-week series of demonstrations of mixing colour for our Palette emulate the tones and values we see around us. Snowdrops, branches, winter skies and landscapes. From wet into wet impressions to realistic details, Susan will share her knowledge of techniques through exciting exercises and painting projects. All levels are welcome!   

Susan suggests that participants bring the following materials:   

Paper - Arches 140lb-300lb. cold press watercolour paper, 9” x 12” or larger.   

Watercolour Paints - Holbein brand: Red (Carmine), Yellow (New Gamboge), Blue (Peacock blue). Can add Olive Green, Opera (hot pink), and Payne’s grey.   

Detailed Brushes – size 01 for fine detail. A good array of brushes includes sizes 04, 1, 4, and 6.  

Mixing Palette - plastic or white ceramic surface   

Sketching – 2b mechanical pencil and white eraser  

Water – 2 mason jars or 2 yogurt containers   

Blow Dryer – nice to have for drying paint layers quickly   

Online pre-registration is required.
