    We are pleased to have nationally recognized artist April Rimpo. She is a prize-winning artist, teacher, demonstrator, juror, and Signature member of six National Watercolor Societies, the International Society of Acrylic Painters, and the International Society of Experimental Artists.  Her acrylic and watercolor paintings have appeared in three North Light Best of Acrylic books and in two Best of Watercolor book, Splash 19, and the Splash 21 publication.

    In this 4-day virtual workshop we’ll focus on creating a painting on Aquabord. This surface has some properties like working on watercolor paper but other properties that lean toward working on more slick surfaces.

    Learn how to work with watercolor washes to produce vibrant, textural paintings. Reference materials and instructions on preparing the Aquabord prior to the class will be supplied via a Workshop Reminder email about 1 month prior to the workshop.

    There will be a step by-step instruction demonstrations, and one-on-one interaction during the class. Knowledge of basic watercolor is helpful. 

    Videos will be recorded and shared daily. They will be available to watch for 30 days.

    Landscapes

    April will be doing a landscape with trees, likely including water. She has provided a few references that you can use if you don’t have your own reference, but using your own is highly recommended.  By using your own photo, free from copyright, and of your own design would open more opportunities where you might use your finished painting.

    We're hoping April's sample photographs below will give you some ideas on what you might want to paint. 

       

     

    L to R (top to bottom):

    Fall Trees, Springtime by the Stream, Spring Woods,
    Getting Ready to Fish, and Treeline.

    Be sure to order your Aquabords well in advance of the class. It is not unusual for art suppliers to run out of Aquabords and wait for the next delivery that could be a couple of months.

    We recommend you use an 8” x 10” or 11” x 14”.  Working larger on Aquabord is quite different from working on watercolor paper so a small size gives you a higher chance of completing large portions of the painting during the class. 

    Preparing Your Aquabord

    At least 2 or 3 days before the workshop wet the entire surface with water using a wide soft flat, like a hake. Make sure it is very wet and saturated with water then let it sit until it is totally dry. There can be air bubbles in the clay surface that will be released by wetting. Better to do before the class or you first layer of paint will have small bubble marks.

    Please also transfer your image to the Aquabord™ before class.

    Please order your Aquabord™

    early as they are sold out frequently. You can either paint the sides of your board or frame it in a deep Floater Frame as described below.

    • Ampersand Aquabord™ Panel - 8'' x 10' OR
      11" x 14" x 7/8'' deep Cradled (For workshop painting)
    • Ampersand Aquabord™ Panel - 6'' x 6'', 1/8'' (For practicing color blends and layering)
    • Ampersand Floater Frame - 8'' x 10'' for a 7/8'' deep panel, black wood with 3/8” bold edge face OR
      11" x 14" for a 7/8'' deep panel, black wood with 3/8” bold edge face
    • if you don't want to frame, but paint the sides instead, please buy Daniel Smith Watercolor ground

    April will provide a link to her YouTube video in which she demonstrates installing a deep cradle Aquabord panel in the frame. 


    Supply List:

    Brushes: You will need soft brushes either natural hair or natural and synthetic blend brushes to reduce lifting earlier layers of paint.

    #10 or #12 Round (April uses round brushes from KingArt Original Gold Brush (9020) Round or Princeton Aqua Elite Professional Watercolor Brushes.)

    #6 or #8 Round

    #2 Script Liner or Lizard Lick brush (Cheap Joes - CJLL-6)

    ¼” to ½” soft flat wash brush that can hold a lot of paint
    (April uses Cheap Joe’s Dream Catcher CJDC-25 or CJDC-50)

    2” – 4” hake or other soft brush for wetting the Aquabord

    A water mister may be helpful, but not essential.

    Paint: You can use whatever watercolors you have, but recommend you have the 15ml or larger tube watercolor. We'll start with paint from the tube (not dry paint in your palette)

    Download the Supply List for Paint, Brushes, Aquabords, Floater Frames Options and see what April will use during the workshop. It includes links to the supplies in Dick Blick.  Remember to order your Aquabords as soon as you sign up.

    BWS is pleased to have nationally recognized artist Janet Belich teach at the Howard County Arts Center. She is a prize-winning artist, teacher, demonstrator,  and Signature member of American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society (SGG), Philadelphia Watercolor Society, and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. She has won various awards in those exhibitions.

    Janet resides in Germantown, MD and is a graduate of Westminster College in Wilmington, PA where she earned her BA degree in Art Education.

    "I attribute my love of watercolor to having studied there with Robert Hild, AWS. I have always kept in mind his mantra that 'with quantity comes quality' and so even in the years of moving constantly and raising a family, I painted in an effort to keep skills from rusting. Good thing too, as so much has changed since then, but I still try to be a 'Purist' with drawing and brushwork. I tend to see everything in terms of watercolor...'virtual watercolor glasses', if you will, so my subjects and interests span the gamut. Over the years, I have enjoyed meeting so many wonderful painters and have learned a great deal from the uniqueness each brings to the medium."

    In this 2-day workshop we’ll focus on using transparent watercolors and Gouache, creating a painting using both mediums to create a painting of Janet's choosing. 

    Learn how to work with watercolor glazes to produce vibrant, textural paintings. 

    There will be a step by-step instruction demonstration, and one-on-one interaction during the class. Knowledge of basic watercolor is helpful. 

     


    Janet: "Observing the intricacies of Indian corn can help one develop skills to paint anything. The simple act of observation is the most important key to telling your story in watercolor...or any medium, really.  We will see shapes and their relationship to each other, the contrast of light & dark values and that dreaded perspective all taught through the subject of corn. 

    With multiple glazes of transparent watercolor we will develop the rich darks that make the light values jump out and add dimension to the flat surface. We'll also compare characteristics of transparent pigments to gouache by looking at paintings done with that medium."



    Janet  will supply a photo reference to be transferred on to the paper before coming to class the first day.


    Janet's Supply List: 

      **PAINT: Any brand of professional transparent, tube watercolor. (I use Daniel Smith (DS) and Winsor Newton(W/N). Bring what you have and don't limit yourself to my brands or color choices. 

             Some of my favorite colors are: W/N Olive Green, W/N Violet (Dioxazine), W/N Cadmium Yellow, DS New Gamboge, DS Undersea Green, DS Quin Gold, DS Quin Gold Deep, W/N Antwerp Blue, W/N Cadmium Scarlet, W/N Alizarin Crimson, DS Indigo, DS Ultramarine Blue, DS Quin Rose, Maroon Perylene, DS Isoindoline Yellow. 

    **PAPER: ARCHES #140 COLD PRESS PAPER. 2 or 3 Half sheet sizes(15"x20") will be good. Plus, smaller pieces to use to test things. 

    **BRUSHES: GOOD quality preferably natural hair or blends of various size rounds. Ones I go to mostly are Winsor Newton or Escoda Reserva #10, #8, #6, #4 and a larger mop brush or one that holds a lot of water. Again, these are what I use but bring what you have.

    Syllabus:

    Proposed workshop curriculum

    by Keiko Tanabe

     Theme:  Capturing Essence with Watercolor

     

    RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE:

    All levels (basic knowledge & some previous experiences strongly recommended to benefit from this workshop)


    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

    This workshop is designed for those who would like to gain a better understanding of methods and techniques to make a watercolor painting that is simple yet strong.  The goal is to capture the essence of the subject that conveys a certain mood. The process of simplification begins with visualization.  In representational art, this ability to see the end result of a painting, through the mind’s eye, is instrumental in realizing an artist’s vision. Through complete, step-by-step demonstrations, Keiko will show you how to take the initial inspiration, through the simplification process, to an expressive painting that is strong in composition and content that is full of light and atmosphere.

    Subject matters include landscape, cityscape, waterscape and interior. The introduction focuses on the fundamentals including getting to know our materials and seeing things with an artist’s eye. The areas of topic covered in this workshop include: a preliminary drawing and composition, a variety of techniques in paint application and brush handling, what makes a good design, understanding of relationship of dark and light values, planning & intuition, and how to edit complex visual information.

    There will be a demonstration, plenty of one-on-one guidance and a question-and-answer session on a daily basis. A class critique may be conducted at the end.

     For more information about Keiko visit www.ktanabefineart.com

    All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium.  


    SUPPLIES LIST AND PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Keiko's  WATERCOLOR MATERIALS LIST

    *This is a general list.  Some items below may not be for the workshop you’ve signed up for.  You don’t usually need an easel if a workshop is conducted in the studio, for example.

    - Paints: professional quality brands (such as Sennelier, Winsor & Newton, Holbein, Daniel Smith).  My basic palette consists of cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, burnt umber, quinacridone gold, lemon yellow, cobalt turquoise.  I also include: French ultramarine, yellow ochre or raw sienna, Dioxazine purple, cadmium red, cadmium orange or Winsor orange, viridian, lavender, titanium white.  You may bring your own favorites, too.  Include one color suitable for a monochromatic painting such as neutral tint, sepia, Payne’s gray.

    - Palette: any kind.  Plenty of mixing areas will be useful.

    - Brushes: Large brushes for a wash such as Raphael Softaqua (#6 or 8), Isabey natural hair mop (#8) and Escoda Ultimo (#18 or 20).  Medium-sized rounds (#12) such as Raphael Kolinsky 8494 and Escoda Ultimo or Versatil.  Brushes for details such as Raphael Precision and Escoda Perla (up to #14).  Other brushes useful: liner, rigger, dagger, flat (hake), etc.

    - Paper: rough or cold-pressed; 140 lb (300gm) or heavier; professional quality such as Arches, Saunders/Waterford and Fabriano Artistico.  Please, no student grade paper.

    - Paper Size: For my demos I use 14”x20” (36x51 cm) or half-sheet (15”x22”), and sometimes 18”x 24” (46x61cm).  In an outdoor workshop, a smaller size (12”x16” for example) may be more practical especially for quick studies.

    - Others (required): Drawing board, gatorboard, foamcore or anything that supports paper (If you use a block, this will not be necessary.), masking tape, clips, or staplers to secure paper to the board, Pencil (2B, 4B or 6B) & eraser, Sketchbook or drawing pad for thumbnail sketches and small studies, Container for washing brushes, towels or sponge

    - Others (optional) e.g. table-top or foldable easel, masking fluid, salt, atomizer, tissue, color chart, viewfinder, value finder, ruler, hairdryer; portable chair, umbrella, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. that you think might be useful.
