Autumn Leaves in Watercolor with Marlene Gremillion

In this online course you will paint a grouping of autumn leaves, semi-realistic in watercolor. You will learn a variety of watercolor techniques. The instructor will demonstrate the process and you may paint along. Some prep work before the class is best like putting your drawing on your paper and having materials set up at your desk. This class is digital, via Zoom. It’s live and interactive!

Students are responsible for their own materials, though Emergent Arts may have some of these supplies. If buying your own materials for this workshop is cost prohibitive for you, or if you’re on a tight budget, please contact kara@emergentarts.org to see what materials Emergent Arts can supply. Items that Emergent Arts can most likely supply are marked below.

Supply List Autumn Leaves in Watercolor, Instructor Marlene Gremillion:

-Arches 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper at least 8×10 inches (EA can supply, if needed)
-Soft watercolor brush that comes to a good point size 8 or 10 round I like the silver Black Velvet brands (Cheap Joes https://www.cheapjoes.com/catalog/product/view/id/27123/s/silver-brush-black-velvet-brushes/ and Jerry’s Artarama https://www.jerrysartarama.com/silver-brush-black-velvet-watercolor-brushes online carry this brand) (EA can supply a variety of watercolor brushes, but they not be of consistent quality)

– Watercolor variety of colors recommend winsor newton, van gogh, American journey, pelican, are some good choices. Colors: sap green, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, cadmium yellow or lemon yellow, cobalt blue should be enough to mix some autumn colors
– Pebeo Drawing gum
– Old brush for putting on Pebeo drawing gum (EA can supply)
– Dish soap very small amount
– Plate to put out your paints or if you already have a paint pallet you may use what you have
– Paper towels and or kleenex
– Two water dishes (old butter containers or cool whip containers work nicely)
– Pencil
– Eraser (kneaded or white eraser work best)
– Small amount of table salt
– Masking tape

I will include a photograph you will need to print out for reference along with a drawing (print it out also it should fit an 8×10 watercolor paper size) to transfer to your paper. You may tape the drawing to a sunny window and tape your watercolor paper on top of it and trace the drawing to your watercolor paper with a pencil. I like to use an inexpensive technical pencil size 7 because your lines stay the same size. Press just lightly for you to be able to see your drawing on your watercolor paper.

NOTE: Please have your drawing on your watercolor paper ahead of the class and have all your watercolors ready to go with your water and paper towels set up also.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me at gremartist@gmail.com. After signing up for the course, email Marlene at the above address or kara@emergentarts.org for the photograph Marlene mentions above.
