Parkland17 Prints


BackpacksThank you for your patience. Prints of my painting: Parkland17 are now available. Through the InPrnt process, each order will be fulfilled on demand by InPrnt and 50% of the cost will be for the cost that InPrnt incurs to produce, package and ship the print to you. I have decided to donate remaining proceeds to everytown.org, a non-profit that is working to end gun violence. InPrnt will then match 10% of the donated dollars to everytown. So basically, if you buy a print for $15, $7.50 will go to gun safety. And then after that an additional $.75 will go to gun safety, a total of $8.25. If you feel so inclined, please help spread the word. Thank you to my friend and colleague Misty Mawn for helping me navigate this path to get these prints to happen.

Buy your print here.

This is a demo painting I made in Portland this past week, while teaching oil painting. It is dedicated to Jennifer Willoughby and all who are or have been caught in the cycle of domestic abuse as we find the ways to resist our society's longstanding tradition of believing the Rob Porters of the world, including the current disgusting administration.

Gouache Painting
2-Day Workshop :: September 15-16, 2018
with Peter PixelPChan

LOCATION
207 N. Broadway Street, Studio L
Santa Ana, CA 92701

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
Join Peter Chan of Pixelpchan as he offers a very special 2-day workshop where we explore the wonders of painting with gouache. On both days, Peter will provide slide presentations to review fundamental painting topics. He will also perform demo paintings, followed by in-class painting instruction and feedback as we review Peter's paintings from his earlier work all the way up to his most recent paintings.

SCHEDULE for BOTH DAYS:
  • Arrive & Settle: 9:00 :: Time for students to arrive, settle in.
  • Class Segment A: 9:30-12:00 :: Class time with Peter who will demonstrate and guide the 1st part of class.
  • Lunch & Stroll: 12:00 PM :: You can choose to brown bag it or take a stroll to one of the many hip and artsy eateries in the historic Artist's Village in Santa Ana, like C4 Deli, Chapter One4th Street Market, Cafe Calacas, and The Gypsy Den.
  • Class Segment B: 1:30-4:30 PM :: Class time with Peter who will guide the 2nd part of class.
  • Clean-Up & Depart: 4:30-5:00 PM


SUPPLY LIST: All participants are asked to bring the following to the workshop:

  • GOUACHE PAINTS: These are the colors that Peter is currently using but you are free to try other ones:
    • WINSOR NEWTON: Permanent white, primary yellow, cad yellow, bright red, cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, yellow ochre, burnt umber, ivory black
    • HOLBEIN: ultramarine blue light, grey no. 1, lilac, pink, opal, navy blue
    • Peter also adds cheap gouaches by Reeves brand ... you can buy a 24 color pack for $15. They are actually pretty good to start out if you have less of a budget and want to test out gouache before committing to the expensive stuff. If you decide to start with the Reeves brand and can budget for a couple of expensive tubes, go for Winsor Newton's permanent white and primary yellow.
  • GOUACHE PAINT CONTAINER:
    • There are different ways to transport your gouache. Using a small box like this is a good option.
    • Some people also like to use the sta-wet, and squeeze out new paint for each painting session. The biggest difference is that if you go with the first option, you have to wet the paint once a week to keep it from drying out, and you have to always carry it in your hand leveled.
  • BRUSHES
    • One big Princeton brand synthetic round brusy, #16 or #20, and a 1/2-inch flat brush.
    • Also get a couple of variety of sizes for the flats and rounds like this set
  • OTHER STUFF
    • small cosmetic spray bottle
    • small water jar
    • mixing palette
    • watercolor paper or sketch book
    • masking tape
    • paper towels
    • foam board to tape your paper to

Sexy Watercolors & Gouache
1-day Workshop :: March 17, 2018
with Jenny Doh

LOCATION
207 N. Broadway Street, Studio L
Santa Ana, CA 92701
studio@crescendoh.com

Watercolor2

In this 1-day workshop, we will create many practice papers as we work with watercolors, graphite, ink, and gouache to first study values, then to use make final compositions that are sexy, experimental, and downright exciting ... the opposite of boring and dusty. Here's what you'll need to bring:

Supplies to bring to class:

PAINTS
o Gouache performs like watercolors but it is opaque rather than sheer. Gouache comes in tubes and you squeeze out a little at a time. Make sure to include 2 reds, 2 blues, 2 yellows, black, white, 1-2 browns, 1 green, 1 orange, 1 violet, and any other colors that you might be attracted. Holbein Acryla Gouache, and Windsor Newton Designer Gouache are my favorite brands of gouache
o Watercolors comes in tubes or pan sets. Unlike gouache, it goes on sheer, and also you can squeeze out watercolors into a little container and though it will dry, it can be reactivated with water. If you want a basic set in little pans, a set like like this one will be fine. If you want to get tubes, get 2 reds, 2 blues, black, white, 1-2 browns, 1 green, 1 orange, 1 violet and any other colors you like. My favorite brands are M. Graham & Co. Artists' Watercolors, Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors, and Holbein Artists' Watercolors.

• Black Stabilo pencil
• Regular pencil
• Masking tape 1.5 or 2 inch in width
• Watercolor postcards
• Raw wood panel (a 3-pack of 5x7 will be good)
• Pencil sharpener
• Watercolor Graphite
• Mixed Media Sketchbook (I carry the smaller 5.5 x 8.5 size that fits nicely in my backpack. That's my go-to size. Having a larger size for the studio is also a good idea.)
• Parallel pen size 6.0mm with the blue cap
• Watercolor Paintbrushes (Currently I like Golden Taklon brushes by Trekell. Size 10 is a good one to have.) 
• Acrylic Rulers (I have several sizes and having several is good if you are using small and large sketchbooks. For a smaller sketchbook, a 5x5 or 6 x6 inches would be good.)
• (Optional): Watercolor tin: Here's a cute little tin that you can use to squeeze out your watercolor tubes if you go that route. This is only for watercolor tubes, not gouache.
• Smart phone or ipad fully charged, with images that you want to reference for work.

SCHEDULE for BOTH DAYS:
  • Arrive & Settle: 9:00 :: Time for students to arrive, settle in.
  • Class Segment A: 9:30-12:00 :: Class time with Jenny who will demonstrate and guide the 1st part of class.
  • Lunch & Stroll: 12:00 PM :: You can choose to brown bag it or take a stroll to one of the many hip and artsy eateries in the historic Artist's Village in Santa Ana, like C4 Deli, Chapter One4th Street Market, Cafe Calacas, and The Gypsy Den.
  • Class Segment B: 1:30-4:30 PM :: Class time with Jenny who will guide the 2nd part of class.
  • Clean-Up & Depart: 4:30-5:00 PM

Channeling my inner @duane_keiser for this, my 600th painting. A little bit of my favorite French rosé (La Ferme Julien) in one of my wine glasses ... and hunting for shapes and colors. So fun.
