The Baltimore Watercolor Society is pleased and excited to host Linda Baker in a second four-day workshop from Monday, June 16, 2014 through Thursday, June 19, 2014 at the Hawthorn Center in Columbia, MD. (The first Linda Baker workshop week, June 10-13, completely filled up in less than eight hours after registrations opened, so we are fortunate in being able to have Linda stay over for a second week and teach a second workshop for 25 additional BWS members.)
Linda is an internationally-known, award-winning signature member of AWS, NWS, TWS (as well as several other watercolor societies) and her workshops are always in high demand. As a professional watercolor artist, Linda is intrigued by the gentle translucence of nature. She considers her work to be a contemporary approach to traditional subject matter. Striving to simplify the complicated while seeing the unique in the ordinary, she captures the essence of gentle scenes with harmonious strokes. Visit Linda's website to read more about her and view her recent paintings.
The price for the workshop is $300 for BWS members and associates and $325 for non-BWS members. Participants will be limited to 25 people and the workshop cannot be split with another person.
The event is 80% refundable until April 30, 2014, but no refunds will be given after that date unless the spot is filled from the waiting list.
Linda's Recommended Material List
Imagination – Sense of Adventure.
Bring whatever supplies you have or normally use. I don’t want you to spend a lot of money for something you may not love.
- A zoom finder (Cheap Joe's) OR two small L-shaped corners like mat samples.
- Tracing paper, graphite transfer paper, and sketch book (important), pencils.
- I will be using the Faber Castell-Pit Artists Pens-grey tones for working in the sketch book and I highly recommend them.
- Paint Supplies – bring whatever you have or normally use in whatever media you choose. I will be using:
- Samples or slides or photographs of your personal work along with a resume if you have one. I will try to spend time with each student individually.
- Paper – Kilamajaro paper from Cheap Joes or Arches 140# or 300# ColdPress -either will work.
- Boards – Gatorboard or some other paint board to work on.
- Paints – I will be using M. Graham & American Journey. Please bring whatever you use and do not purchase especially for this workshop. Make sure you have a red, blue, and yellow.
- Brushes – 3” flat, selection of rounds (30, 12, 8, 6, 4) and flats (1”, ½”,¼”), scrubber, rigger, palette knife, pen knife or table knife.
- A pipette if you have one. A sponge.
- Masking – Pebeo drawing gum is my favorite. Old brush or Ugly brush to apply & rubber cement remover. If you do not have or use masking, I will have small kits available at the workshop for $20.00 that includes a small bottle of masking, a couple brushes, a remover, and a pipette.
- Palette – white tray or palette.
