    Watercolor Supply List


    • Paint Tubes:

    I recommend the brand Winsor Newton; other brands are good as long as they are not student grade. When purchasing paint, avoid buying a color with the word HUE, as it indicates a lesser quality pigment.

    – Cobalt Blue
    – Ultramarine Blue
    – Cerulean
    – Phthalo Blue
    – Cadmium Red Deep
    – Cadmium Red Light
    – Alizarin Crimson
    – Cadmium Yellow
    – Lemon Yellow
    – Burnt Sienna


    • Brushes:

    – One sable watercolor brush – Round size 6 or 7
    – One sable watercolor brush – Flat 1/2inch wide for washes
    – Optional: A squirrel brush with wire wrapped ferrule.

    – Optional: One rigger or liner (a very thin/long shaped brush)


    • Watercolor Paper:

    Students have the option of buying a watercolor pad (size: 9”x12”) or bigger sheets and cut it to size (9”x12”). 140 pound hot press (smooth), cold presses (medium texture) or rough sheets of paper – depending on your surface texture preference. I recommend Arches watercolor paper. Please do not purchase 90 pound paper, it’s too thin.


    • Palette


    • 2 Cups for Water


    • Paper Towels or Rag


    • H Pencil and Eraser

This class will focus on learning to paint landscape scenery in step by step demonstrations. The subjects will include a variety of landscape such as skies with clouds, sunrise, sunset, etc. We will work with layers of space/foreground and focus on creating texture and details. Demonstrations will occur at the beginning of class, so that students can practice the learned concepts while creating their own watercolor paintings. There will be time for individual critiques -using breakout rooms- and we will view master artworks through virtual museum visits.
