Landscapes and Bodies of Water in Pen and Ink and Watercolor 4/3


    Supply List:

    • Waterproof (felt tip) ink pens in several size tips, a good one is Faber-Castell 4PITT Artist Pens, Black. OR any portable sketch pen with waterproof ink, there are some very nice fountain pens used for sketching – example: Lamy pens, Rotring, etc.
    • Sketch pad, approximately 11 x 14” or what you prefer to use, with paper heavy enough to accept watercolor if desired
    • Tracing paper pad  or several large individual sheets.
    • Soft pencils, sharpener and kneaded eraser
    • Portable water container if using watercolors
    • Small set of watercolors or watercolor pencils.  Watercolor brushes in several sizes if using watercolor, for instance #2 round, #4 round pointed, #6 round and #12 round brushes are all good choices. 1 or 2 brushes are sufficient.
    • Rags or paper towel for cleanup
    • Portable chair for onsite sketching
    • Students are encouraged to bring any photos they would like help in developing in case of inclement weather.

    I encourage students to bring the tools they already have and are comfortable working with. This is a very portable class, and the media we use should be quick drying and easy to carry.
