PAINTING LIKE THE MASTERS IN WATERCOLOR
Instructor: Peg Sheridan
$165 // 6:00-8:00 pm // Tuesdays // February 5-March 12 // Beginner - Advanced
Join us as we study the work of artists such as Winslow Homer, Pierre Joseph Redout, Charles Demuth, Zoltan Szabo, and James McNeill Whistler. We will look at each artist’s techniques, and try them on our own paintings. You choose works that inspire you, and either copy them or use what you learned from their work to enrich paintings of your own images. Each student will also choose a contemporary watercolor master to either copy or inform his or her own paintings.
Instructor Peg Sheridan has been painting in watercolors for 38 years, and teaching for 18 years. She is known for her encouraging, “no fears” way of teaching watercolor painting. She is a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, and has won many regional awards for her paintings.

From Peg: “I am not particular about brushes or paints, but I insist on Arches 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. This is why: it is impossible to do the techniques I teach using cheap paper. You will need 2 sheets (22X30). Do not bring Strathmore of any weight.”
Watercolor brushes, including: 1″ flat, #8 or #10 round, a rigger (#2, 3, or 4) and any other brushes you may want to bring. Bring your largest sized brushes, as they will help you to paint more loosely. A scrubber brush (#3, 4, or 6), is useful.
A covered palette or a clear or white plastic plate, etc. If you cover it after a painting session, you can reuse the paint. Otherwise, a white china or plastic plate works for a palette.
Student or professional grade in a yellow, red, blue, brown. Colors I recommend are: gamboge yellow, Alizarin Crimson or Rose Madder, Ultramarine blue, Burnt sienna, and Hookers Green. Add any of your favorite colors.
Any firm surface, such as masonite, foamcore, etc. It should be at least 10X12.
-A drawing pencil (B or HB or H)
-Sketchbook or loose paper, to take notes and make small sketches.
-Bring references of your preference. Look for images with a range of light to dark, big shapes, and interesting compositions.
