LIST OF MATERIALS FOR THE BAGUETTE STILL LIFE!
Download link - this may or may not work!!!!!
You should have all received the link to this weeks film, as it was filmed on zoom I cant upload it to thi website. Just let me know if you would like a link.
I thought it might be helpful to give you a list of colours and materials along with the actual photo of the set-up. I have also included my sketch, in case that is of interest.
I think you might find it a lot easier to just watch the film and take notes and do your painting at a later date. However do set up a still life of your own based around this subject as it is always better to draw from life rather than a 2D photo.
ANY medium will do, it does not have to be a water colour.
I am using Winsor and Newton ‘rough’ 300gsm watercolour paper but you can use anything so long it is fairly robust. Preferable larger than A4. If using pastels use a nice earthy coloured piece of paper.
Ditto oils in which you could use red as your ground!
A suitable red for the kerchief – Bright Red is the one I have.
I will probably mix green with Green Gold and Ultramarine
OR ultramarine with Raw umber or Raw Sienna
A decent pencil: 4,5 or 6B or a graphite aquarelle pencil(ie watercolour pencil) or even charcoal with watercolour can be very effective.
Pen and wash - a nice sepia ink with French ultramarine wash works well.
Brushes I am using a size 14 with a smaller one for detail.
Good Luck! A
