Virtual Studio Workshop: Watercolor Block-ins with Mario Robinson

Join master watercolorist Mario Robinson to learn how to build a solid foundation for any watercolor painting. In this two-part virtual workshop, Robinson will share his technique of laying in monochromatic blocks of color through a series of delicate washes. This process leads to paintings in a realist style reminiscent of the work of Andrew Wyeth.

This virtual workshop consists of two 90-minute sessions (Saturdays, August 7 and 14, 1:30–3 pm each day).

Suggested supply list:

• 300 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper
• watercolor brushes
• Reeves watercolor palette
• plastic muffin pans
• artist tape
• spray bottle
• mason jars
• paper towels
• watercolor paint: burnt umber, French ultramarine blue, permanent rose, Payne’s grey, sepia, neutral tint, permanent alizarin crimson, raw sienna, burnt sienna, indanthrene blue
