Supply List for Watercolor classes

Basic supplies for watercolor allows a consist ability to explore and
define the vast range and flexibility of this medium while giving
personal emotion, conviction, and style to your work.
1. Supply List

 

a. Brushes - Basic round brush is the work horse of painting. Sable is the
best but very expensive. I use Sable/Synthetics - they work
well and hold their shape. Flat Brushes are great for clean edges,
smooth clean paint with each stroke strokes.
Most important Tip - Make sure your brushes come to a crisp fine point.
Brushes sizes - Round - #6, #8, #10 #12
Brushes sizes - Flat - 1/2 inch and 1inch,

 

b. Palette - A covered palette allows mobility, protects paints and
avoids a mess with wet paint. But palettes are a personal as
our painting style. Check out a number of styles and choose
the one that best fits you.

 

c. Paper - Pads and block of watercolor paper are good but limit how many
painting you can do at one time. On the positive side you will not
need to staple or tap down your paper.
Single sheets/pads - Standard sizes 9x12, 12x14
Most common papers are Arches, Strathmore, Canson,
Fabriano and Cotman - Note there are differences
between manufactures in terms of texture surface,
brightness and how the paper absorbs.
* In class I use Canson.
*NOTE - Make sure you buy #140lb - Anything lighter will not hold up to the water.

d. Paints
Paints come in either a cake pan or in tubes. I find that the tube is the
better deal. But the cake is very versatile when painting on location.
Most common paints are:
Winsor-Newton, Cotman, DaVinci, Holbein, Daniel Smith, Schninke,
Grumbacker and Mission Gold are all reputable manufactures of quality pigments.
when choosing paints you want a cool and warm tone for each of
the primary colors.
They are:
Cad yellow, New Gamboge, French Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue,
Cad Red, Alzerion Crimson, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and/or Burnt Umber

 

e. Tools/supplies
12 inch Ruler -
Scissor
Towel Paper - clear white or facial tissue
2 Containers for water
Toothbrush
Notebook/Sketchbook
If possible buy a watercolor sketch book, standard size. It is a great
place to exploration of designs and compositions, practice techniques and
mix colors.
