If you already have watercolor supplies, don’t rush out and buy these. But if you are just starting out, this is the minimum I’d like you to have. Take you time getting your supplies together. Make it fun!
Brushes:(Any brand-don’t go too cheap)
- Flat 3/4 or 1 inch
- Round #8 or #10
- Round #6 or smaller
Palette: Round or rectangle plastic—make sure it has a cover. For example: John Pike Watercolor Palette
Paints: Basic colors: blues, reds, yellows and browns. I'll talk more about color in our class.
- 6 to 8 sheets size 7x10 or 9x12—140 lb or 300lb Cold Press is perfect
- Canson 7x10 or 9x12 sketchbook 140lb—Don't go cheap on watercolor paper
- Stiff board or Art Board to mount your paper
- Any kind of painters tape (1/2 to 1 inch) to tape down paper (Don't buy or use green tape—blue or beige is just fine)
- Small Notebook
