Atmospheric watercolors'- Bring your painting skill to a higher level!

Learn how to paint luminous watercolors by manipulating tonal values, color and edge. In this class, Frank will share advanced painting techniques to create atmosphere, balance and unity in your work. Topics will include design and composition, color and lighting, positives and negatives, simplification of shape, and atmospheric effects. The techniques you will learn in Frank’s workshop transcend the watercolor medium.

Separate yourself from the watercolor crowd and experience firsthand why his courses are so popular! Small class settings only. Please sign up early!

A painter's painter, Frank Eber works in a direct, loose style influenced by the Old World masters. Typical in his art are color mixes and light that evoke nostalgia while remaining absolutely in the present. Frank's watercolor workshops reach beyond technique, encouraging individual expression and observing the elusive balance of forces that create beauty in painting.


All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium and of simple one point perspective. Frank stresses a solid foundation in the basics, “…so that our focus is on creating timeless art. An emotional link is necessary in our work, as well as the connection to the vibrancy of everything we paint.”

Workshop Supply list

I use Artist colors as follows (all pigments by Daniel Smith): Cobalt blue, French Ultramarine, Ultramarine violet, Cobalt violet, Magenta, Quinacridone Rose, carmine, burnt siena, neutral tint, Indigo, German green umber, Verona Gold Ochre, Monte Amiata, cadmium red medium, cad yellow, cad yellow light, cad orange, cobalt turquoise, cob turquoise light, horizon blue, Zinc white and Titanium white

 

Please note that you don't have to get the exact same colors, as long as you have a good range of blues, yellows, reds and a few earth tones, you are fine! Remember, there are only three colors in nature! If you already have watercolor paints by all means use them.

Paper: Arches blocks (12x16 or 14x20), 140 lbs or 300gsm, cold press or rough, please get artist grade paper, not student grade! If you get single sheets, please use ¼ (28by38cm, 11by15”) or ½ (38by57cm, 15by22”) and make sure you have enough for roughly two paintings per day. Also a few scrap pieces of paper would be good to have!

Brushes: I use predominantly DaVinci mops (Casaneo 498) in three sizes (#2, 4 and 6). Squirrel Mops Petit Gris Pur Series 418 (#2 and 5) and synthetic rounds for details: Nova Series 1570 (#6 and 8) Maybe a rigger or a line brush for trees and line, mine is a DaVinci 5519 (#8). I also use cheap Chinese calligraphy brushes in a few different sizes.

Painting palette with nice, deep mixing wells. I use a Holbein metal palette with porcelain coating

Other stuff: easel with adjustable angle, painting surface (to tape the paper to) spray bottle (atomizer, mister), water container, tape (not blue tape!!!), paper towels rags, pencils for drawing (2B-4B), sketch book and note book
