Service Description

Supplies Needed: A pack Medium weight Yupo (available at Cheap Joe’s 74 lbs. 20 sheets) 4 pieces of Yupo used for the class (11x14), 2 for finished paintings “Q” tips for small corrections. Five soft tissues Brushes: Watercolor soft are best, bring them all. A size 0, a size 4, a size 8, a wash brush of at least 1” are a must. Paint tape. Lightweight board to tape your paper to. 12x16 is a good size. We will paint flat at first. Later tilt it to have colors run. Paints: good quality watercolor paints. I use American Journey by Cheap Joe’s. Student grade paints don't have enough pigment to make great colors on Yupo. Colors are up to you. I prefer bright colors, lemon yellow, turquoise, bright blue deep hue, opera, bright green, orange & black are good choices. An iPad or smart phone. Ability to use Pinterest is helpful. Or bring a 2nd color photo that you’d like to paint in afternoon session. It is best if it is a simple subject, ONE focus, like a bird, a flower, or two apples in a bowl. Think loose. This will be a “likeness” not a still life. Keep it simple. Lunch: bring your own. A refrigerator and microwave are available. Coffee and water are available. A 1/2 hr lunch is planned. A SMILE, relax we are going to have a fun time. We will be painting outside the lines!! Ginny's Painting Biography Ginny has been painting for over 35 years. Her early career began with oils. However, she was always fascinated by the way watercolor moves & creates subtle effects. W/C won her over 30 years ago and continues to be her favorite medium. She taught classes at Keeton‘s, Manatee Art Center, Sarasota Art Center and private classes. She taught traditional w/c, inks, and w/c on Yupo. Early in her career she studied with and became a certified w/c instructor for Terry Madden. She has studied with Don Andrews in Europe, Alberto Castanet, Tom Lynch, Pat Weaver, Ann Abbott, Janet Rogers, Taylor Akin, and many others. They all have contributed & influenced her painting style and knowledge. Her teaching career began 25+ years ago in IBM, Exxon and Citicorp NY. Her style is relaxed, caring and fun. I have the ability to make complex subjects easy. “My goal is to have every student learn new techniques, be comfortable, have fun and produce lovely art work.” *Note: In payment process, to bypass Paypal, click on “Try another way”.
