We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist Stacy Lund Levy in this one day workshop.

"Painting Animals in Watercolor"


Workshop attendees should have an understanding of basic watercolor techniques.


Artist and Baltimore native, Stacy Lund Levy has been creating art in many forms since kindergarten.  She is a former medical illustrator turned professional fine artist and teacher. Currently she teaches classes at Carroll Community College and North Carroll Senior Center, as well as watercolor workshops in and around Maryland. She is both a board member and signature member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society, and will become a signature member of both the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Watercolor Societies in September.  Her work can be viewed at Lundartstudios.com, on Instagram @Artorangutan, and in the ManneqART Museum.

                                  



 

Capture the personality and feel of soft fur on animals using soft vs hard edges and a bit a masking fluid.  In this workshop the artists will be painting both wet into wet, and wet into dry, with a judicious application of masking fluid that will create a wide array of textured fur, both short and long, black, white, and all coat colors in between .


Challenge yourself to push your abilities to control both water and paint, while learning the full potential and versatility of wet in wet painting and the use of masking fluid.  These techniques can be used to paint a variety of subjects.


The instructor will provide a photo reference or the artist may bring a reference of their own.  If you bring your own reference, please be sure it is in focus, large enough to see all the details, and has a true white and a true dark.


SUPPLY LIST

A completed drawing from the reference provided (or yours), size doesn’t matter, but no smaller than 8x10”.


Paper: Feel free to use whatever brand of good quality paper that you are comfortable with.  Also bring several sheets of scrap watercolor paper to practice masking, as well as the various color combinations.  I recommend either Arches or Fabriano. I use Arches 300 lb. cold pressed.


Paint

Different brands produce different results.  I prefer Daniel Smith or Winsor & Newton.   I will be demonstrating with the following colors:


Ultramarine Blue

Burnt Sienna

Alizarin Crimson

Yellow ochre

Cerulean Blue

Cobalt Blue

Opera Rose

Quinadradone Gold

Viridian


Masking Fluid

I prefer Pebeo, because it is pale blue and you can see where you are applying it.  Please bring what you are comfortable with. MAKE SURE IT HAS NOT DRIED UP. Masking fluid should be very liquid and not clumped.

Rubber cement pick-up (to remove masking)

Brushes

Various sizes (again, whatever you are comfortable with).  I typically use a 1” flat or larger for backgrounds, Rounds #4, 8, 10, 12, or 14 rounds

I prefer Ascota Perla, Loew Cornell Ultra Round, and Princeton Aqua Elite

Rigger brush for small details.

Grainer brush ¼ or ½” for fur.  These can be found online at Dick Blick or Plaza Art for under $10.00.

      

Grainer Brush
