Bev Boren's "Drawing and Painting Living Things in Lively Ways"

The class will begin with about an hour of instruction and drawing instruction.  Then Bev will teach how to paint fast and loose watercolors of birds that will help your imagination take flight.

Bev will provide photographs but the participants are free to bring their own for reference. Participants will have time to paint, with Bev guiding students in making their own creations.


Whether you're looking to improve techniques, escape from holiday stress, design your holiday card, or create gifts for family or friends, you'll take away a lot from this one-day class.

A kitchen and refrigerator on site so b
ring snacks or a sack lunch to enjoy during the workshop. There are also nearby fast-food restaurants.

The church requests that attendees park on the north side of the building.


BRUSHES:  For this class you will need only a few basic brushes.  Synthetic brushes are less expensive and will work just fine for our projects and exercises.  Suggest a large round (16) and a small round or rigger for making fine lines.

A PALETTE with plenty of mixing areas

PAINT:  Tube colors are strongly recommended.  For the sake of expense, we will work with a minimum of colors. You certainly can purchase all the colors you want but the following will be all you actually need for this class.
Reds:  Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Red, Burnt Sienna
Blues:  Ultramarine, Peacock Blue, Cobalt
Yellows:  Yellow Ochre, Lemon Yellow, or Cad Yellow
Browns:  Burnt Umber
Small tube of White Gouache or Titanium White WC
Optional Colors:  Permanent Rose, Sap Green, Quinacridone Gold and Turquoise, Sepia, Neutral Tint

PAPER:  Suggest 140 Lb. Cold Press watercolor paper.  Full sheets 22"x30"
which we will tear into 1/2 and 1/4 sections for most of our projects.  You will also need a small SKETCH PAD

ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES:  The following are things you probably have around the house but are important tools in the painting process:
Water resistant board
Water container
Sponge or paper towels, pencil, masking tape, spray bottle, kneaded eraser, Fine Line Marker (optional)

Please bring photographs or other images for subject matter.  I will bring many photos that you are welcome to use.

Note: this is just a suggested list.  You can bring your normal palette of colors or just a warm and cool of each color (red, yellow, and blue)
