    This ZOOM Paint-In will be Saturday,  May 8 from 9:30-12:30.   The ZOOM access code will be in your registration confirmation as well as an email the day before the Paint-In.  We recommend you sign in at least 10-15 minutes before start time.  Fee structure for the ZOOM class will be the same as previous in-person Paint-ins.

It will begin with a demo.   The goal is to use a waterscape photo reference and interpret it into a loosely rendered watercolor.   Together we will:

  1. Choose photo reference
  2. Create multiple fast thumbnail sketches in pencil or charcoal to capture the essence of the scene
  3. Create quick color thumbnail from one or all the pencil sketches to work out color choices
  4. Produce a ¼ sheet or 9 x 12” painting from the above

Suggested (but not required) Supply List:


Pencil, eraser

¼ sheet or 9 x 12 watercolor paper—2 or 3 sheets

Small quill (#2) or mop brush


Suggestion: a Mimik Synthetic Kolinsky Sword Liner ¼” brush (~$10 on Amazon) 

Sharpened Stick

Stirring straw (coffee stir straw)
