Discover and nurture your own personal style of expression. All levels welcome.
Materials List:
1. Watercolor Paper: 140 pound (or higher weight) cold press watercolor paper. I recommend a watercolor block rather than loose sheets to begin with. Brand could be Arches, Winsor & Newton or any other. Size around 10x12 If using loose sheets, you will need a backing board and masking tape to support the watercolor paper.2. Watercolor Paints: I prefer Watercolor Tubes. However, I encourage you to bring whatever you already have with you. For a good experience of learning good quality materials are very important. We will start off with a warm and cool version of Red, Blue and Yellow and a few neutrals. Any brand like Winsor & Newton, QOR, Daniel Smith, Holbein etc. Cadmium Red or Quinacridone Red Alizarin Crimson permanent or Quinacridone Rose Cadmium Yellow or New Gamboge Lemon Yellow Ultramarine Blue Cobalt Blue Cerulean Blue Burnt Umber Burnt Sienna Chinese White3. Brushes: A few good quality brushes are required for a good painting experience and quality of learning. Some brands suggestion could be Winsor & Newton, Escoda, Richeson, Cheap Joes. Synthetic blends are good to start off with. Any brush that will hold water and come to a good point and springs back is considered good for watercolor. Bring any you already have with you.1-inch Flat wash BrushRound Brushes: No: 14, 6, 2 Rigger Brushes: number 4 & 2 4. Watercolor Palette: Any plastic watercolor palette with at least 10 wells to pour out the different paints and enough space for color mixing. I recommend a John Pike Palette. 5. 2 Plastic cups or small containers to hold water. Paper towels for mopping water. Masking tape or artist tape, drawing book to work out ideas, HB Pencil and eraser.
