Warm/cool playful painting

If you are unsure about warm colors vs. cool color; If you want to be bold, playful, unstructured; If you want to learn a little more about negative painting; If you want to paint a colorful painting, then this is the class for you.

Come learn about Gesso juice and how it can work for you.


Acrylic inks, they are so bold and beautiful. You may also use watercolor inks and/or fluid acrylics.

Recommended colors that I have, but feel free to use colors of your choice,

Daler Rowney: light green, process yellow, flame orange, fluorescent pink, process Cyan, white (a must have in alcohol ink with dropper), pearlescent colors. I also have Bombay Indian Ink: crimson and red violet. You may also use any watercolor inks. I really like to incorporate some Golden high flow acrylics in cool and warm colors. (They don’t have to be high flow but I like them)

Basically, anything you have that can be dripped on paper and moved around with a spray bottle will work. I know we can all share colors.

2 quarter sheets of full size 140# watercolor paper, (a little larger than 11”x14”) I might try hot pressed if I have some.

Black Posco pen, sharpie or macron pens.

White gesso

Brushes, just two. One large to paint your paper with gesso and one approximately ½”

Water spray bottle, fine mist if possible.

Please call me if you have any questions. Also, please RSVP.
