Perfect for beginners!  We’ll paint Van Gogh’s Starry Night in watercolor together and learn a little bit about him and outer space while we’re at it. Art instructor Mary Gale-King is President Emeritus of the California Gold Coast Watercolor Society and her work is included in both corporate and private collections in North America and throughout the world.

Material List:

  • Watercolors & Water. Prang makes nice watercolor sets for mixing. 
    • OR: A set of watercolor “dot” palettes with 66 colors from Daniel Smith watercolors or whatever you have on hand. You just need a very basic palette, one of each primary color and green works. Mary also uses white gouache paint with these; it is beginner-friendly and gives an old-fashioned feel. 
  • Watercolor Paper: Any size of decent watercolor paper can be used. Mary uses tablets from Michaels and suggests 9"x12” watercolor paper cut to 9”x6” or 5”x7” paper from tablets which saves cutting time. She likes a “standard” size so that you can easily put it in a frame.
  • Brush/brushes (any size that scales well to the paper size). For suggested brushes, click here.
  • Paper towels
  • Fine tip Sharpie or other black pen. Micron is a high-end art pen option.
  • Reference photo of Van Gogh’s Starry Night
