WATERCOLOR

Exploring Watercolor Washes – A Mini Watercolor Workshop

CLASS NOW LIVE (click here)

Learn the importance of watercolor washes and water control | taught by Carrie Luc (Watercolor Misfit)

NOT YOUR AVERAGE WORKSHOP…

I’m proud to announce! This is the second course in a series of mini workshops – I will be releasing over the next couple of months. These workshops target key skills that you have to know in order to succeed at watercolor. I feel so strongly about these skills – that I’ve created an entire workshop dedicated to just one topic – in this workshop we will be discussing water to watercolor washes and how paint make-up (such as transparent and opaque paint colors) can affect your wash. This is a skill that I had to learn the hard way and developed over years of trial and error. But now I get to share all my knowledge with you – in a short and fun video workshop – breaking down this topic and making it as easy as possible to understand. This workshop is basically the training wheels to starting watercolor and if you’ve struggled with paint mixtures – this workshop is for you!

THIS WORKSHOP IS DESIGNED TO ALLOW YOU TO GO AT YOUR OWN PACE

  • AN INFORMATION PACKET WITH EXERCISES & SPECIAL INFO
  • 6 INFORMATIONAL VIDEOS EXPLORING WATERCOLOR WASHES
  • BONUS NEVER BEFORE RELEASED – BUNNY & BEAR MEETING DRAWING TEMPLATE
  • BONUS – TIME-LAPSE PAINTING OF BUNNY & BEAR MEETING
  • BONUS – FULLY COLORED PAINTING OF BUNNY & BEAR MEETING FOR REFERENCE

SNAPSHOTS FROM INSIDE THE WORKSHOP

NO DRAWING SKILLS NEEDED…

Once again I’ve included templates and charts to help those who find drawing challenging!

“BUT WHAT IF I’M NOT A BEGINNER…?”

No worries, just think of this course as a review course for the basics. Remember you can always learn something new as long as you have an open mind about it. 


FOLLOW ALONG WITH MY WORKSHEETS…

I’ve also included a packet of worksheets & Informational charts to help you follow along with me during the workshop. I created these to make learning as easy and simple as possible all while having fun!

I DON’T HAVE ALL THE SUPPLIES…

  • No worries, again! This workshop is set up for you to discover and learn with whatever paints you have. However, I DO HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU have TWO TRANSPARENT PAINTS & TWO OPAQUE PAINTS THAT WILL BLEND TOGETHER EASILY for this workshop. I will be using Scarlet Lake, Indian Yellow, Cadmium Orange, and Cadmium Red for my transparent and opaque paint colors (all of which are from Winsor and Newton). However, that being said — feel free to use your own paint colors during the exercises – just make sure they you have 2 opaque colors and 2 transparent colors to get the most out of this course. ?

HOW DO I KNOW MY PAINTS ARE TRANSPARENT OR OPAQUE…

  • There are actually two ways to check if your paints are transparent, opaque, semi transparent, or semi opaque? One way is by checking your tubes and looking for the manufacturers symbol for opaque or transparent. I demonstrate this in the course – but sometimes manufactures don’t put these symbols on their paints. 
  • So, the second way you can tell is by painting a solid black line of permanent ink on your paper, letting it throughly dry and then painting over it with your watercolors. Yours transparent paints will appear to sink below the line or under the black line. Meanwhile, your opaque paints will appear to rest on top. I walk your through this in the course – but wanted to let you know ahead of time – for when you are gathering your paints. 
DURING THE COURSE – WE WILL BE EXPLORING HOW OPAQUE PAINTS & TRANSPARENT PAINTS CAN HELP US OR HINDER US WHEN PAINTING WATERCOLOR WASHES.

        You are so wonderfully generous! Yes! I just can’t wait! I have just purchased the ‘pure pigment’ set of the Mission Gold watercolors by Mijello. I have the other set(s) and some extra colors. But I am hoping to learn to mix and glaze using the single pigment colors and improve my theory a bit. This class will be another great step for me. PURR-fect timing, Carrie! I can’t wait and will be one of the first in line to join! <3 Thank you!

    Sounds wonderful! Other than a few brands of pan watercolors, ranging from super cheap (but loved) to decent, i have Qor “gel’ tube watercolors. Will they work? If not I can hightail it to an artist supply store, though was hoping to use Qor or possibly the others.

    And are your templates for watercolor paper? If so, my printer balks at anything over 80 lb. cardstock, and sometimes refuses that, so any suggestions?

    Can Winsor & Newton (opaque) be used with Qor (transparent/semi-transparent) for class exercises? Or will the different binders mess that up? I have 24 Qor colors, none opaque, and their opaque colors are not harmonious with the colors I have. But I could buy two opaque Windsor & Newton or Daniel Smith tubes. (Hoping you’ll see this since emailed you after my comment didn’t show up, so trying again since will be heading to the art store today to also get a 1.5” brush.) Thanks! Posted on a forum about the class – it sounds great.

      Yeah – That shouldn’t be a problem. Mixing brands shouldn’t cause an issue :) I have several different brands that I use but winsor tends to be more accessible – so I tend to use it more in courses :D

        Thank you, then I’m set! I was concerned since Qor doesn’t use the same type of binder that any of the others do. They’re holding a 1.5” flat wash brush for me at the art supply store!
