Bring essentials such as paint, brushes, paper towels, water basin for clean and dirty. Brushes: #10 round by Loew Cornell, the 7020 series. Riggers and other small brushes that you are used to work with. Flats work and so do angle brushes.
Bring a sketchbook to practice in. You will be happy later to have sketches of the birds you choose to paint, plus take notes on the techniques you see me use.
We will use Arches 140lb, 100% cotton, cold press paper. I cannot guarantee results with any other paper. Please have it ready to go on at least 9 x 12 inch paper, Tape paper to a firm surface with masking tape. Painting tape preferred.
