Watercolor Workshop Supply List
Please Note: Following are the supplies I use to create my paintings. I do not require that you replicate this list. However, I feel it important to use all artist grade materials for optimal results. I do not recommend student grade materials.
Small sketch book. I use a 6x6 Spiral Canson Field Sketch Book
Soft lead pencil, sharpener and eraser
Support like Gator Board to hold paper. Not necessary for watercolor blocks
Black Sharpie Pen
Paper towelsand/or tissues
Small pointed palette knifelike used for oil painting. I use this tool in every painting.
Bring several photos that you have personally takenprinted out on your home computer as 8x10 copies on plain computer paper in a very light grayscale or draft mode. These will not be used to paint from but will be used for compositional purposes only.
Arches Watercolor Paper In either 8x10 or 9x12 for watercolor sketches. Don’ t bring sizes larger than you’re comfortable painting on.
Arches Watercolor Blocks are optional. In small sizes no larger than 12x16 are great too. I will be using these!

Princeton Synthetic Sable Brushes 4050 Liner Series: #2 and 4. I use a liner brush in every painting.
