Quarantine Watercolor with Barragry
June 22-26 at 10am Alaska time
Did you want to do Watercolor with Barragry at SFAC this year but were afraid that her messy techniques and #whattheheck attitude might cause the release of dangerous airborne particles?! Well NOW YOU CAN PAINT WITHOUT FEAR! Thanks to the 21st century miracle of Remote Learning (TM)![Quarantine] Watercolor with Barragry has been formatted in accordance with state and CDC health guidelines to avoid all human contact! In addition to which, tubes of paint will be required to stay six feet away from each other and all brushes will wear tiny masks and gloves! Barragry will fearlessly demonstrate a wide range of exciting watercolor painting techniques and then - you will copy them! All without being in the same room - or even the same time zone! You will watch exciting demos, ask questions, get advice, and paint along in real time, occasionally bursting into song, all without breathing in any human exhalations, except those of your choosing!
A few days before the class we will be sending out a link to join the video chat!
We will use a restricted palette of 8 colors, you do not need black or white.
- 2 yellows - lemon yellow and yellow ochre
- 2 reds - a standard red such as Cadmium hue or Winsor red plus a pink-red like Opera Rose, Quinacridone Magenta, Permanent Rose, Alazarin
