Painting on Location
by Donald A. Jusko
Artists 3 Color Pro Workshop
with Don Jusko
Kihei, Maui, Hawaii
In a building behind a church we gathered to paint. We were painting with pigments not available in tube form so we made our own watercolors using the dry pigments from 3 different countries, France had the best magenta color by Sennlieair, PR122. Italy has the best Transparent Indian Yellow, PY153 and Germany has the best cyan, PB15.3. Honey, gum arabic and pigment, 1:1:2.
The subjects would include a good range of colors, an apple, a lime and a banana with brown spots plus a blue plate or cloth for the fruit to rest on. It was a 3 hour class.
Barbara Steinberg-Orlowski is president of this group, the Maui Watercolorists Association. She's sitting in the left foreground.
||Elizabeth Current started with a wet paper and let the sheen disappear before drawing with the yellow wash. Here she is starting with the magenta wash on the red apple.
|That's a nice netural gray in the background but a dirty green lime.
|Denise Copenhaven and Carol Pheneuf
||Really good color Denise, and I like the brave cropping.
The picture is a little out of focus :(
||Jonathan Orlowski and Jean Keating
|Jim Redden painted two paintings.
Speed comes with painting a lot, that's Jim's way, every day.
|Johathan's painting is larger then the rest of the class, 11x15. He has an excellent start building up his colors.
||Mickey Haller was using a hot pressed paper.
||Good secondary red and green.
