The best way to study a master painter is to copy their work. 

Ksenia will talk about Van Gogh’s style and approach to form and color.  She will paint a replica of Van Gogh’s “Three Sunflowers in a Vase.”  Instead of oils, she will be using watercolor, both transparent and opaque!

Materials for this class:

  • Watercolor paper, cold press at least 50% cotton if possible. Ksenia will be painting on 11”x15” (30 x 40 cm), but you can use a smaller format as well.
  • Ksenia’s pigments (you can use similar colors from any brand):
    • Daniel Smith (DS) Lemon Yellow
    • DS New Gamboge
    • DS Permanent Orange
    • Holbein Mineral Violet (or any deep violet color to mix to get brown; if you don’t have a suitable purple, Burnt Sienna will be fine)
    • DS Sap Green (warm green)
    • DS Cascade Green (cooler green)
    • Sennelier Royal Blue or DS Cobalt Blue
  • 1/2”, 1/4″ and 1″  flat or flat angled brushes – all synthetics
  • white gouache – any brand will work. Do not squeeze it out in advance! White ink will work too if you don’t have gouache
  • oil pastels, or dry pastels, watercolor brush pens, soft color pencils, markers – any line tool you have. Colors: brown, dark blue, light and deep yellow, white
  • a ceramic plate or a clean tray (for mixing opaque color)
  • two water containers, paper towels or clean rags
  • hair dryer if you want your painting to dry faster
