Ian Ramsay Watercolor Workshop

March 1, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Bountiful Davis Art Center

2-day Watercolor Workshop:
March 1-2, 2018
Time: 9 am – 4 pm daily, with 1 hour break for lunch
Tuition: $125 per student (This workshop is currently Full)
Ages: teens to Adults

The class will consist of a step-by-step development of one painting by each student while following Ian’s lead for two days. We will learn watercolor landscape techniques for a realistic portrayal of sky, water, landscape, buildings and boats. The class is relaxed and very informal. A drawing for all to work from will be supplied via email well before the class date.

Materials are not included


Please come prepared to the workshop, with your drawing carefully laid out on a piece of watercolor paper to the size of 12’ x 16” or larger. Use good quality W.C. paper (Arches or Fabriano); 140 or 300 pound, either cold press or rough. The paper should be secured to a firm board with tape, staples or both.

You will need a variety of good quality brushes, large and small, for washes and details respectively. Also, bring along a medium or large size ‘stiff bristle’ oil painting ‘Fan’ brush for some special techniques.

As to paints, a wide variety of colors can be used and adapted to our needs. I will be using, specifically: yellow ochre, hansa yellow, raw sienna, burnt sienna, burnt umber, cadmium red, quinacridone rose, deep scarlet, sap green, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue and thalo green (blue shade). I also use other colors, but more than enough can be done with those enumerated. In addition to these watercolors, you will need a white gouache…preferably permanent white.
Chinese white watercolor would also be acceptable.

Please bring along a good natural sponge for softening and correcting mistakes. Yes, we can fix a watercolor painting! We all make mistakes and I will show you how to deal with them.

Be prepared to relax and have fun. This won’t be the Spanish inquisition… Ian.
