Watercolor Sketching Supply List
In general, any watercolor paint, brushes, and watercolor paper will do, but if you need to purchase materials here is a list:
Winsor Newton is recommended; other brands are also good. If possible, avoid the word HUE in the name of the color of paint, as it indicates a lesser quality pigment.
The instructor prefers to buy tubes and a separate palette, refilling the palette as needed.
Basic colors for starting:
- Cobalt Blue
- Ultramarine Blue
- Phthalo Blue
- Winsor Red
- Cadmium Red Light
- Alizarin Crimson
- Cadmium Yellow
- Lemon Yellow
- Burnt Sienna
- One round size 6 or 7 genuine sable is best or a squirrel brush with wire wrapped ferrule.
- One flat brush about 1/2 inch wide for washes
- At least 8”x10” 140lb cold press (medium texture) or hot press (smooth) watercolor pad or bigger sheets and cutting it to size (90lb is thinner and may curl).
- A drawing pad that is good for water media – at least 8″x10″
If you already have supplies bring what you have, and the instructor will evaluate the materials with you.
