AGL is honored to have Frank Eber as the juror/judge for the AGL 52nd River Road Show, a national art show & competition. Coming to us from Paso Robles, CA, he is an accomplished artist in both oils and watercolor. Frank was raised in Europe and was mentored by Italian Master Painter Ronato Casaro in the early 90’s. Frank is an award winning artist and conducts workshops locally, nationally and internationally. He is a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, as well as a member of the California Art Club.

The class will learn how to create an image of chosen landscapes in watercolor with a step by step process. To speed up the class exercise, Frank Eber will provide a reference photo and drawing for the group exercise. Following a painting demonstration, workshop participants will do their own painting in order to fully understand the process. While concentrating on technique, the concept of color theory, composition, and color values will be incorporated into the workshop.

Supply list

I use Artist colors as follows (most pigments by Daniel Smith and Holbein):
Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine, Ultramarine Violet, Carmine, Quin Magenta, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Neutral tint (black), German Green Umber, Raw Sienna light, Cadmium Red Medium, Cad Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Hansa Yellow, Cad Orange, Cobalt Turquoise, Pthalo Blue, Pthalo Turquoise, Horizon Blue, Titanium White

Please note that you don’t have to get the exact same colors, as long as you have a good range of blues, yellows, reds and a few earth tones, you are fine!
Remember, there are only three colors in nature! If you already have watercolor paints by all means use them.

Paper: Hahnemuhle/ Arches / Saunders block (12 by 16) 140 lbs (300gsm) cold press or rough
Please get artist grade paper, no student grade paper!
If you get single sheets, please use nothing bigger than 1/2 sheet. Also a few scrap pieces of paper would be good to have!

Brushes: I use predominantly DaVinci round mops Series 224 in two sizes, #4 and #6. Furthermore, I use a synthetic pointy brush (DaVinci Dartana #7) for details. Lastly, I have some Chinese and Japanese Calligraphy brushes that I buy on Amazon and sometimes use a Hake brush as well.

Painting palette with nice, deep mixing wells. I use a Holbein metal palette 1000 with porcelain coating.

Other stuff: easel with adjustable angle, painting surface (to tape the paper to) like coroplast sheets, spray bottle (atomizer, mister), water container, tape (not blue tape!!!), paper towels, rags, pencils for drawing (2B-4B), sketch book and note book, camera.
