Hi Friends! Today at 12:30 ET I will have a free live painting class on my YouTube channel, we will paint this:
You can watch the live show or the replay here but if you want to hang out in the chat be sure to watch it on the You Tube watch page. Here is the pattern for the chapel, you can print it whatever size you like. Position the chapel on your watercolor paper 1/3 of the way up and from the side in the lower right hand corner. This makes use of the ‘rule of thirds’ which I will explain in the video.
This project uses a limited palette of colors, only 4! I will be suing Turner Watercolors available exclusively at Jerry’s Artarama but you can use any brand you like. You will need:
- A cool pinkish red (Alizarin Crimson, Quin. Magenta, Rose Red, Maya Red)
- A warm yellow (Permanent Gamboge, Cadmium Yellow, Indian Yellow)
- A warm blue (Ultramarine or cobalt)
- Burnt Sienna
Brushes: I am using an assortment of Mimik faux squirrel and faux kolinski brushes from Jerry’s Artarama. You don’t have to have the exact size I have, just try to use something similar. I like the faux squirrel brushes for the sky because they hold a ton of juicy paint!
Paper: I am working on a 12″x16″ block of Canson Montville #140 cold pressed watercolor paper, if you are working smaller you can use smaller brushes. For instance if you were working on a 5″x7″ watercolor greeting card a 3/4″ flat would be more appropriate than the 2″ wash and you could omit the #30 round and use a #10 instead.
