Painting Portraits with Trish Poupard:

We will discuss:

1. Materials the preparation and painting process.
2. I will paint live as I demonstrate my techniques.
3. I will be taking questions on the project.
4. I strongly feel that an artist’s success lies in an ability to “see” lights colors, shapes, etc.
5. I chose the project to enable participants to fall in love with this simple method of painting portraits.

Attendees Supply List:

Watercolor Paper: 140 lb. cold pressed 100% cotton. I will be using 11x15 (quarter sheet) or larger. You may do 1/8 sheet 7.5 x 11 to fit the image size and for ease of printing at home.

Painting Board: not necessary since we won’t be needing to paint on a slant with this painting.
Wax Free Artist’s Graphite Transfer Paper: I use Sally’s Saral which is water miscible and erasable. If you’ve never used this, I will have some used pieces for you to try out.

Mechanical pencil: HB lead in size 7 or 9. Or any stylus for transfer of image. I will bring some sharpened chopsticks to pass out, my favorite.

Subject: color copy printed. (Trish will bring copies for you to transfer to your watercolor paper. She will bring one for the photo reference, one for the value study and a double size reference to use for transferring. If you would like to also try your own subject, bring an enlarged color copy to fit your paper.)

Water Container: the largest you can manage so you don’t need to change it very often.

Mixing Palette or plastic white plate: I use paint dried into deep wells of a watercolor palette. I re-engage the paint with water before painting, waking up the palette. The paint brands I use are great at “re-wetting” since I don’t squeeze paint fresh from the tube each time I work on a painting.

Watercolor Paint: I use tubes of the following brands: Holbein, Daniel Smith, American Journey, Turner Professional (Jerry’s Artarama). Colors I will be using: Neutral Tint, Cerulean Blue, Hansa Lemon Yellow, Opera Red. (You may use whatever you have. I want to emphasize that you don’t need to buy anything special if you already have paints. We will use only 4 colors.)

Brushes: I will be using a variety for this painting: synthetic rounds size 6 and 8. Synthetic flat 1⁄2” or larger. Real or synthetic squirrel #12 round or oval wash (a thirsty brush). Different sizes of scrubbers. #4 rigger or a medium sword brush for wiggly uncontrolled lines.

Note from Trish: I will be bringing paper in case anyone needs a quarter sheet for $2. I will also have transfer paper, paints, and brushes to purchase if anyone needs it.
