Liquid watercolours are an excellent medium for creating dynamic water-based nudes and portraits because of the precision of colour you can choose,; their ability to dry fast; and their clarity of colour, which makes them easier to use on less expensive papers. If you’ve been struggling with watercolour nudes for a while, you may find that using liquid watercolours opens a new world of possibilities for you. Particularly adept to creating luminosity, this lesser-known medium is the secret behind many a glowing figure painting.
The principle liquid watercolours we’ll be using in this class are Ecoline 374 (beige), Ecoline 381 (pink); Ecoline 533 (Indigo), and Ecoline 416 (Sepia). Please also bring watercolour paper, tape, a pencil and eraser, brushes, paper towels, and two cups of water. A hairdryer is recommended.
If you don’t have the exact colours, or would prefer not to buy new liquid watercolours—don’t worry! You can either dilute a large batch of tube or pan watercolours in a small jar, or use ink. Recommended mixtures: quadricone violet + yellow (gamboge recommended); cad orange medium and cyan (orange and blue).
All levels are welcome--although this is a beginners' class. For further information or to purchase the video recording instead, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
