Basic Supply list:
This is my basic list for all classes. Please bring what you already have on hand. No need to pick up anything extra that you might not have. (Unless a trip to the art store sounds like awesome fun!) You can always top up your stash after class
if there is something that you “need”!! See extra notes for particular items pertaining to each class!
- Paper: a few pieces of approx 6 x 8 inches ( smaller or larger is fine too) good quality watercolour paper – Arches 140lb Cold Press or similar or good student grade
- palette (with squeezed out paint) or whatever you have. There are some very
- good travel kits with a good selection of colour.
- Watercolour brushes – 3/8” dagger; a good # 6 or #8 round and a 1⁄2” or 3/4 ” flat brush, size small waterbrush (I prefer Koi Sakura brand). Any other brush shapes you might have - ie: triangle, filbert, etc. (optional)
- lightweight board board larger than your paper
- water spritzer, Kleenex, paper towel, water container
- .05 black Micron Pigma pen or fine tip Sharpie or similar (waterproof and lightfast)
- Pencil, pens (other kinds you have for embellishing), eraser, ruler, notebook/journal or sketchbook
- Masking tape - 1⁄4” or 1⁄2” or whatever size you have. (optional - bring it if you have it!)
I will be using a full palette - bring whatever you have or enjoy using.
- ALTHOUGH these classes are based in watercolour, you can also use any of the following that you may already have on hand also or instead of: colored markers, watercolor crayons, watercolor pencil crayon, pencil crayons, brush pens, iridescent watercolors or markers, posca pens, glaze or gellyroll pens, etc. and any other fun art supplies that might work here.
- Pencil, eraser, ruler or other straight edges
- A tiny bit of salt, white wax crayon or anything else you might like to use for texture - (optional)
- An old toothbrush
- Fine-tipped, waterproof marker - like a sharpie - I will be using black. If you prefer, you can use any color you like!
- Palette knife - I use a small metal diamond shaped one with a very flexible tip. A small piece of plastic like a guitar pic or an old credit card will do. If you have a brush with a chisel tipped handle, that works as well.
- Water basin, paper towel, kleenex tissue
- lightweight board to protect the surface you are working on.
Suggested paints if you don’t have any.
- I would recommend a small folding palette with at least the following: cool red like permanent rose or magenta; warm red like napthol or pyroll red; burnt sienna; raw sienna or quin gold; primary yellow; thalo blue; thalo green; ultramarine blue, cobalt teal, indigo
I recommend getting the best possible quality in your budget. There are some very good travel kits out there for reasonable prices that have a good selection of colour in them
