Course Supplies:   Note: the best quality you have or are able to purchase

Link below for on-line ordering with all the foundation supplies. Added Miscellaneous listed below

* Images/Photos- I will provide an image of a landscape or Still Life to do. 

* Paint   You are welcome to bring your own.

   Primary Colors: Red, Blue, Yellow - You just need the primary colors bare minimum of course ( make all the other the colors on the color wheel!!) 

   White gouache or acrylic white  - I try to not use white most of the time with watercolor painting, but it is is nice to have on hand. One example is splatters of snow flakes or ocean spray! I like preserving the white of the paper as I paint!

This Winsor & Newton Cotman palette  along with brush set and paper is what I recommend for beginners as a great start! As you grow in watercolor painting, you will continue using the colors in your initial palette and then discover even more colors to add to your personal palette!

     These are the Winsor & Newton kits color names ( View in link above)

Lemon Yellow Hue, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Permanent Rose, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue Hue, Viridian Hue, Sap Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Ivory Black, and Chinese White.

... in whichever brand and form of Watercolors you have- pan, tube, expensive, inexpensive.  

Color Mixing - I will be showing you how to create value range and mix a wide range of colors, with just using the primary and secondary colors. 

    Any additional colors will just add to the color range within your artwork. 

* Watercolor Brushes - the best quality you have or are able to purchase

*  Watercolor Paint Brush Sets: Synthetic-White or nicer (Round 2, 8, 12, Stroke 3/4, Flat Wash 1/2).

I suggested a good base set for beginners. As you grow you might add more brushes

* Paper - the best quality you have or are able to purchase, it just needs to be watercolor paper

  •  9" x 12"  300 grams rough texture 140 lb. This is a good weight paper that won't warp from moisture

* Misc. Supplies from home needed:

  • Roll or 5 sheets of paper towels
  • 2-3 sticks from yard for sgraffito (scratching out) lines
  • toothbrush for splatter
  • 3-Water containers (any sturdy cups) I like medium size glass jars
  • Masking tape 
  • #2 Pencil or mechanical pencil (#2 lead) for light drawing with eraser
  • Spray bottle- for misting
  • 11" x 14" stiff board to mount 9" x 12" paper onto with tape- foam board, card board, masonite board 

    * Blowdryer (If you have one) - for drying layers in between
