Sunset Over the Harbor

Online Class with Cynthia Rosen

Thursday, August 19th, 5:00-7:00 Eastern

This workshop will focus on silhouetting the scene against the brightly lighted sky reflecting on the water. Cynthia says: "Unlike most of my workshops we will quickly block in the darks and pull up the lights. We will use both brush & palette knife." *For those who do not regularly use a palette knife at all, this will be a great opportunity to try one out to help carve in the boats and posts!* 

Recommended Supplies

  • Canvas, panel or heavy watercolor paper (if using water-based medium) - suggested sizes: I recommend a 16x20 surface though a smaller surface will work if you want to minimize detail
  • Suggested paint colors for oils, acrylics, gouache: Titanium white, prussian blue or thalo blue, purple dioxizine, cobalt blue or ultramarine, alizarin permanent, cadmium red medium, cad orange, lemon yellow or cad yellow light (Note: If using acrylics, Cynthia suggests having some gesso on hand if your brand of white is not very opaque)
  • Brushes: #5, 9, 12, or whatever you are used to
  • Palette Knives: RGM #46 and/or #50 or equivalent shape in other brands.
