April 28, 2017

Here's a joyful reminder:
Tomorrow, April 29 is the long-awaited workshop with Ian Ramsay.
Doors at the Center will open at 9 a.m. and we will plan to begin at 9:30 sharp.

Have your palette, your drawing 11x15 on good paper on a sturdy board, all of your regular gear,
perhaps a lunch, definitely something to keep you hydrated,
and if you wish, bring a somewhat healthy snack to share.
(I'll leave that definition up to you!) 😉

Someone asked where to find photos that are not copyrighted, (aside from the stacks we all seem to accumulate?)
Here is a free, easy and legal resource:

If you haven't already, you might want to subscribe to 15Bytes, the Artists of Utah website. You'll find interviews, reviews, announcements of gallery openings; all sorts of good information.

Here is some really good advice from John Hughes, about getting the 'fine' back into our fine arts.

UTAH WATERCOLOR SOCIETY
will present a VERY accomplished watercolor artist, Janet Rogers, who will present at the
UWS meeting on Tuesday, May 2. You won't want to miss this, and
UWS is always welcoming to visitors. Here are the particulars:

April 26, 2017

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF SCHEDULE:

Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved  MAY'S Third Thursday meeting to the fourth Thursday, May 25. John Fackrell will do a Yupo demonstration for us.
We'll meet at Sandy Senior Center as usual,
and begin at 5:30. This will be a demo, not a paint-along due to time constraints.

Giant thanks to Maura Naughton for an engaging talk last night about having a vision of what we want to paint, setting goals and completing our work. How do we know when it's done? Stop when you think you're about 90% done; walk away, come back later, and see if you really need to add anything else. Better to leave it than to overwork it. Good advice!


And here is a free offer for the next 4 days: free videos to watch at Artists Hub.

WORKSHOP MATERIALS & INSTRUCTIONS



     Please come prepared to the workshop, with your drawing carefully laid out on a piece of watercolor paper to the size of 11” x 15” 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 stiff bristle oil painting ‘Fan’ brush for some special techniques.



  

Here is Ian's materials list for April 29.


   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.

My notes from Tom Howard Drawing Vocabulary March 2, 2017 ( I hope I have this right!)


Tom Howard March 2017 SWG


Perspective=2d representation of 3d object =correct angles

Gesture drawing: capture angles by using your hand at arm’s length, elbow locked, using your pen, hand,  or brush to carry the angle to your paper.

Point of comparison: compare 2 elements in the scene. Key intersecting points, verticals and horizontals. This helps with position and scale.


Positive space is the object

Negative spaces= shapes around the object (around the positive spaces)

Exercise: drawing everything around the object EXCEPT the object and make it appear. (he does this with his college class, encouraged us to try it. Start simple!! 😃



Perspective=2d representation of 3d object =correct angles



Shading vocabulary:

  1. Highlight: white of the paper or lightest color
  2. Half-tones: all the shades that are not highlight nor shadow
  3. Core shadow: The darkest part of the shaded object
  4. Cast shadow: the dark-to-lighter shadow of the object on a surface
  5. Ambient light: ‘wandering photons’ that make little appearances here and there
  6. Reflected light: on the object, within the core shadow
  7. Reflected cast shadow: an extra layer of shadowing where the object meets its shadow
  8. Refracted light=bent light: “prenumbria”  occurs at the farthest edge of the shadow where the sharp edges of the shadow become softer
  9. Mirror image=paler perfect copy of the object; just as long as the object is high, just as wide as is the object on a shiny surface.
Homework: sketch something EVERY DAY.

Paige Kimball's workshop has been moved to

Saturday, March 25. Time and place remain the same:
Sandy Senior Center, 9310 So. 1300 E. Sandy Ut 84094

Here is what you'll need for that exciting day!

 ****(bring a lunch, and if you wish, a snack to share.) ****

FOR THIS “PORTRAIT” WORKSHOP:
Come with 2 faces drawn in pencil-media lead, on good quality watercolor paper (at least 140b, cold press, at least 11 x 14, with reference photos. Please no ‘posed’ shots—candid shots with some sense of emotion or story are best, and head or head and shoulders only.  Be thinking about the MOOD you would like the portrait to convey AND whether you prefer a warm or cool pallet for the painting(s).  You will also need a tilted surface/table easel, thick kitchen sponge and paper towels, paints (including yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, ultramarine, cobalt, cerullean, burnt sienna, a deep brown and a deep cool like indigo or shadow violet or neutral tint) and a variety of brush sizes with good tips-important to bring one large ‘juicy’ brush that holds a lot of water and one small brush with a good point for details!

Sad/Exciting news from Colleen Reynolds. What will we do without her? The SLC art scene will have a Colleen-shaped hole in it.
Here's her message:


Please change your records to reflect my email address as 


                                            colleencrbe@gmail.com


My family and I are moving to Carson City, Nevada at the end of this month! 

Unfortunately, our current Internet provider does not service Nevada, so I have to close out my longstanding email address colleencrbe@q.com. 






Class enrollment for Ian Ramsay's class in April has been closed.  A drawing for the exercise will be shared soon with those who are enrolled. Thank you!

LOOK AT THIS! PAIGE KIMBALL, COMING MARCH 18



BIO:
Paige fell in love with her first box of Crayola Crayons while quarantined with Scarlet Fever as a child.  Still obsessed with color, she now experiments with water soluble pigments like watercolor, acrylic, vegetable juices, tea and even blood. From her first portrait in 2009 till now, she continues to be recognized for her unique style: large paintings with simple subjects, bold color, and a mix of spontaneous shapes and controlled subject forms.  Each painting is an experiment with lessons to be learned and often an unpredicted outcome. Her work has been awarded extensively locally  jurored into regional shows, hangs in homes and offices across the country and even in Korea, and will be featured in Kauia in the coming months.   Paige currently specializes in watercolor pouring and large scale portraiture. She feels the vibrancy and luminescence of transparent mediums offers a dimensional experience that opaque mediums fail to capture. Fine watercolors are truly rare and she feels that quality water media paintings breathe life into a home. She currently teaches small workshops and children or women groups locally.  Her paintings are sold at Incredible Dwellings in Salt Lake City and online.

FOR THIS “PORTRAIT” WORKSHOP:
Come with 2 faces drawn in pencil-media lead, on good quality watercolor paper (at least 140b, cold press, at least 24” on each side) with reference photos. Please no ‘posed’ shots—candid shots with some sense of emotion or story are best, and head or head and shoulders only.  Be thinking about the MOOD you would like the portrait to convey AND whether you prefer a warm or cool pallet for the painting(s).  You will also need a tilted surface/table easel, thick kitchen sponge and paper towels, paints (including yellow ochre, alizarin crimson, ultramarine, cobalt, cerullean, burnt sienna, a deep brown and a deep cool like indigo or shadow violet or neutral tint) and a variety of brush sizes with good tips-important to bring one large ‘juicy’ brush that holds a lot of water and one small brush with a good point for details!
