As an artist with experience, you will probably have established colour choices that you enjoy painting with. I encourage you to
continue to be true to yourself and use the paints that you are comfortable with. I have some basic colours that work for me. You
may want to experiment with them if they are not part of your pallet already. Workshops are designed to gather information and
to try new ideas; if you do not have all of these items you might share with your neighbor or try it when you get home. I have 6
transparent colours, a warm and cool red, yellow and blue with supplementary pigments for good luck! Minimum colour range warm and cool red, yellow and blue.
An assortment of sizes in round and flat shapes. I do recommend
that you have some larger brushes in your assortment (1”, 2”).
Your choice of Paper, Canvas or Board
Use an artist quality rag paper. 140 lb or heavier.
