BRING THE MEDIUM AND SUPPLIES YOU ENJOY THE MOST…CANVAS, COLLAGE ETC. WHTAEVER TURNS YOU ON. I AM THERE TO HELP, ENCOURAGE, CRITIQUE AND EXCITE YOUR CREATIVE SPIRIT!

 

The following is what I enjoy using. The choice is yours. Just be sure to bring a creative spirit!                              

TAYLOR IKIN YUPO WORKSHOP

                                 

PAPER:        YUPO paper   This is the only surface I have used for years. My

process depends on the unique qualities of this fabulous synthetic   surface.  Bring several sheets of medium or heavy weight Yupo paper.

 

BRUSHES:  I like BIG brushes 36 rounds and 2” flat.  Bring what you have.

 

PAINTS:      I prefer American Journey Paints by Cheap Joe’s. I use a whole range

of reds, yellows and blues. I would suggest including the Taylor’s Flamingo Pink as it is a great mixer and invaluable in landscape work.

Bring any paints that work for you and make you happy. It does not matter what brand if it is something you enjoy. I will have tubes of American Journey Paints for you to try, compliments of Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff in Boone, NC. They are my paint of choice and yours to enjoy during the workshop.                              

 

REFERENCE IMAGES OR SKETCHES:

Bring your own reference material and pictures or paint as you go…it doesn’t matter. I will demo for you.

Painting on YUPO is mostly a studio event for me. I am focused on the environment and frequently favor landscapes and the surrounding trees etc.

                 

STUFF:           Paper towels, Kleenex, spray bottle, water container, artist tape,  paper   bag for trash, mat knife, brushes, pallet etc… anything important to your painting experience.  Pencils, erasers and anything else that makes you happy and focused!

 

PALLET:        I use a John Pike lid…I like it better when there are no wells and there is a lot of space for mixing your own colors. Paper plates will do as well… so bring what you have at home.

                    

SUPPORT BOARDS TO HOLD YOUR YUPO:

20 X 26 will be good, several needed.  Foam core is what I also use. Cardboard will do if it is all that you have.

 

YUPO:       Great for watercolor, acrylic, crayon, pastel, graphic, pen and ink. Bring 

                    it all and try it!
