Watercolor Prism Technique with Nan Rumpf

Nan Rumpf, experienced and popular watercolorist and teacher will lead this workshop.

In this single session watercolor workshop, we will develop a painting using the prism technique. This method gives a more contemporary look to representational watercolors. We will explore color value, color saturation, glazing and working with a limited palette. We will also try out methods to add patterns to your watercolors. Demos and handouts will be provided by the instructor.

Max students 12
Price: $65
Date and Time: October 31 from 9 am to 1 pm

The W Gallery requires that all students and teachers be fully vaccinated prior to the start of all of our in-person classes and workshops. Mask wearing is at the discretion of the instructor and will be communicated prior to the start of the class. Thank you for doing your part!

Please bring the following materials to class:

  • watercolor paper (140 LB cold press) - Saunders Waterford or Fabiano papers are preferred (Arches acceptable). Cheap paper will not give you good results. You can buy it in blocks or books or full sheets can be cut to desired size.
  • a backboard slightly larger than your paper -(plexiglass 1/8” thick works great – get it cut to desired size at Lowes – you can also just use stiff cardboard)
  • watercolor paint
  • watercolor brushes
  • a misting bottle
  • paper towels
  • artist tape or masking tape
  • water jars or other container - one for rinsing brushes and a second container for clear water
