Learn to simplify and translate subjects to create more dynamic paintings. Students will complete a variety of fun exercises to give them a better understanding of color, value, and composition. This is a class for those who want to learn the abstract elements of visual language. Meg will bring examples of each exercise and give quick demos. Maximum of 8 students.

Supply List: How to See as a Painter

Instructor: Meg Nottingham Walsh

 

Materials List

 

We will use an Acrylic black and an Acrylic white for value studies since they dry quickly

 

Colors:

I recommend a palette with a cool and warm of each primary. It’s useful to have a transparent version of each primary as well, which I’ve incorporated in this list. This is just a general guide. If you want to bring extra colors or substitute your own palette that is fine. I just want you to be able to mix a wide range of colors.

 

Titanium White

Ivory black

Cadmium lemon (cool)

Indian Yellow (warm and transparent) or Hansa Yellow (warm and semitransparent)

Gold Ochre or yellow ochre

Cadmium Red Light (warm) or napthol red

Alizarin Permanent (cool, transparent) or Quinacridone Magenta

Ultramarine Blue (cool and transparent)

Manganese Blue or Thalo Blue (warm and transparent)

 

If you don’t have these exact colors, please bring three primaries plus black and ochre. If you want to bring extra colors, that is fine.

 

Supports:

We will be doing exercises rather than finished paintings, so you may want to work on inexpensive panels, gessoed paper, or a canvas pad (if you are using oils). Bring enough for four exercises each class—the sizes could range from 8×10 to 12×16. The first day we will use the smaller sizes for value studies.If you are using paper or unstretched canvas, you will need to bring tape and a backing board.

Brushes

For oil I like bristle flats or filberts sizes 4-8

Solvent:

For oil painters, please use Gamsol, a container, and a small palette cup

Palette

(whatever size you normally use)

Palette knife

Rags or paper towels

Small sketchbook and pencil or pen
