If you are using oils or acrylic paints, bring six or more 8x10 or 9x12 canvas boards to practice on. If you are using watercolor or gouache, bring extra 120 pound or heavier watercolor paper to practice on. You will develop a color chart so you know your pigments. We will practice all these texture techniques until you know your pigments and are comfortable and successful . At that point, you will have an opportunity to produce one of more paintings that uses the techniques you learned to make rocks, stones and bushes found in Arizona.
