The images I am referencing for this class can be printed from Unsplash.com here and here. If you are unable to print them, no need to worry - I will have a reference photo on the screen as I am painting. I will be using 7"x10" watercolor paper in cold press (see video below for set up) but any size paper can work. I will use both tubes and pans of watercolor to show different techniques, but just one or the other will work. For tubes you'll need red, yellow and blue at minimum but various shades of these colors can be helpful as well as some black. Grab a variety of brushes and a sponge if you have it. Masking tape or washi tape, a pencil, a cup of water and a paper towel will be needed as well. See below for a quick demo on sketching out your landscape with pencil on your watercolor painting before we get started.
