Turner, James – Yupo (all)


Please bring your usual watercolor setup, including tube colors, pallet, brushes, etc.

Make sure you have at least one large (at least 1.5 or 2″ flat wash brush).

I recommend but do not require a set of Dr. PH. Martin’s Hydrus Fine Art Watercolors (available at Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff). These are concentrated liquid watercolors that work wonderfully with YUPO.  They are a bit pricey but you get a lot of watercolor for the money, which can be used in more traditional ways as well.

Several 4″ foam rollers (available at hardware stores, cheap/disposable).

Any stamps, stencils, texturing tools, etc you have.  I will have some of these as well.

A large tube/tub of black and/or white gesso.  I will have some of this as well.

YUPO – Any size/wt OK.  I like Cheap Joe’s 74 lb 20″x26″ which costs about $2.50/sheet and will have some for sale at the workshop.*

*Note:  The Gesso is only for the Abstract workshop and in relatively small amounts
