I DO ENCOURAGED YOU TO BRING SOME OF YOUR OWN PHOTOS.

ESPECIALLY THE MORE ADVANCED PAINTERS.

The beginning of each class is a critique of the homework from the week before-two classes for
the price of one.

 GRISAILLE. A style of painting using only grey tints and giving theeffect of sculpture in relief.

             So listen to the radio on storm days please. 
             I will not call to remind you of this on the storm day.

 

                                            NORA'S SUPPLY LIST

Paper: 

You can get away with a lot of things but NOT inferior watercolour paper. Quality is a MUST and I carry paper with me for you at Cost. A 200 lb. paper that does not need to be taped down.

Brushes:

Watercolour brushes please-trust me, there is a difference from acrylic brushes.   Personally I use flat brushes most of the time, a one inch wide  metal base and a one inch long bristle, also a half inch brush.  You should also have round brushes in 4, 10 and one small enough to sign your name.

Palette: 

 A larger palette with a lid is preferable but you may prefer the more inexpensive with the self folding lid.

Colours:

YOU can get away with student quality paint like Cotman.  I do not use it.  I use artist quality paint, mostly Winsor Newton or Holbein.

Colour choices:

You don't need a huge amount of colours to achieve a variety-you mix them

Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue

New Gamboge & Aureolin - yellows

Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna

Permanent Alizarin, Permanent Rose

With those you can do wonders.  There are other colours I use and you may want to get those when you see if you like or want them.
