A set of watercolours (pans are preferable to tubes)
An A4 pad of watercolour paper – 140lb (300gm) or heavier, “Cold-pressed” paper.
A round point medium size brush (number 7,8,9 or 10)
pencil, rubber, small scissors, a permanent pen like a sharpie.
Optional: oil pastels, small sketchbook,natural sponges, white gouache, watercolour pencils, watersoluble graphite pencils. Don’t go out shopping for any of this if you don’t have it handy.
I’m going to be introducing some wonderfully bright and very inexpensive paints called Anilinky, and you can buy these from me for £3 if you like them. ( and if you don’t have any watercolors, don’t worry. You can just use these.)
Weather permitting, we will be working out in the garden quite a bit, and a light folding chair and water container would be handy too.
Try to keep your materials small and easy to carry.
I have loads of experimental and exciting techniques to share with you, and please do let me know if there is anything special that you would like to work on.
