Mark Making and Patterning:

Barbara will be teaching a unique watercolor learning experience. Marking Making in Watercolor learning experience brings vitality to the artwork work. To make marks one has to draw on utilizing both the elements and principles of design.

Shapes and lines can create patterns, and when repeated de- velop rhythm and unity in an artwork. Understanding how to use these components will strengthen non-objective, abstract, semi-abstract and representational watercolors.

In this program we will create a composition that has a theme: microscopic, underwater, coral reef, nature, festive, mechanical, architectural etc., utilizing techniques practiced in the session and purposefully trying to communicate your theme.

Barbara Fontaine-White, born in the art history famous Hudson River Valley, taught painting and drawing at the university level for over thirty years. She retired in the spring of 2022 as a full professor from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor and now works as a full-time artist.

Her paintings start with observed reality and are synthesized through composition, memory,and imagination. Her work stress materiality incorporating cold wax medium, paint sticks, pastels, and charcoal.

Watercolor and Drawing Art Supplies:

Be prepared to experiment and practice! (Circles and curves are definitely going to be in there!)

1. A variety of brushes of different sizes and profiles. Rounds and flats (1/4”, 1/2, 3/4”, 1” and larger if you have them.) Bring a liner brush if you have one.

2. There will be some 18 x 24 paper available if you don’t have that size.

3. Watercolors of your choice. I usually suggest using a limited palette because the end result will look more unified.

4. Quality paper towels or rags for blotting.

5. Salt, alcohol, natural sponges for texture
