Here is a pattern you can transfer on to your paper:

Here are the colors we will use: Pyrrol Red, Permanent Yellow, Turquoise and Burnt Sienna. We will mix all colors from those 4. The turquoise paint, which is a cobalt pigment, lends itself to lovely texture and granulation in mixes while keeping to color palette soft and gentle.

You can watch the live class or the replay in the player below BUT if you want to chat with us live you need to watch at 12:30pm on this YouTube page and be logged in. Also it is much easier to chat on a computer than on a phone but both are possible:)

You can find all the supplies you need at our sponsor Jerry’s Artarama¬†

Supplies:
Turner Watercolors (or whatever you have) in Permanent Yellow, Pyrrol Red, Burnt Sienna, and Turquoise *All the colors I am using are in the set of 18 that are on Super Sale right now for $19 (List price $150!) If they sell out they will get more in, you can’t beat the price for this quality. It is a steal at their normal sale price of $29!

Watercolor paper: #140 Rough Arches

Brushes: Mimik Kolinski (faux fur)

I hope to see you live at 12:30 on YouTube for this fun class, beginners welcome! We will start off easy with the basics and work further to bring out texture with more advanced techniques. As always you can do as little or as much as you like with your painting:) Happy crafting!
