I recommend having the following supplies:
- Paper: you’ll want to use 140lb or heavier watercolor paper. I’ll be working on small pieces of Arches 140lb. cold-press watercolor paper, 4" x 6" and smaller. Please contact me if you need paper, I have limited packs available.
- Watercolors: please feel free to paint with what you have! I’ll be painting with a combination of my Expeditionary Art Palette, and our Essential Colors Palette which includes Daniel Smith’s six essential colors and is a great place to start if you are beginning.
- Brushes: use what you have! I’ll demonstrate with travel and water brushes, which I like for their portability and convenience.
- Extras: pencil, eraser, paper towel, old toothbrush (optional), spray bottle (optional).
