Watercolor Still Life with Sweet Peas & Freesia

with Sarah Yeoman

Tuesday, July 21, 5:00-7:00PM EDT

Artist Sarah Yeoman will demonstrate how to create a gorgeous still life featuring bouquets of sweet peas and freesia!

A few notes to help you prepare for class!

Participants should have the drawing done in advance of the class. (No detail necessary.) Sarah will demo a value study to start. You can paint along or just watch. We will then paint the color version together. Please remember that Sarah has to paint at a certain speed so if you can't keep up just paint along with the recording afterwards. The recording will only be available for 2 weeks after the workshop.

Recommended Supplies:

  • Arches 140lb cold press watercolor paper (12x16 - please use good paper if you can, it makes a big difference!)
  • Large and small round brushes
  • Paint (you don't need to use the same colors that Sarah does, but she uses: cad yellow, cad red, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, lavender, cerulean blue, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, ultramarine violet, sap green, perylene green, neutral tint or paynes gray)
  • Firm board for taping paper to
  • Masking tape
  • Masking fluid
