Watercolour Classes Equipment List




Student or Artist Quality TUBE Paint 14/15ml size
(if you only have pan paints you will be unable to make the full range of tones)

Preferred colours and/or your usual palette colours, below is only a suggestion:

Paper
1. eg. Saunders, Langton, Arches, Fabriano or student eg.Bockingford, rough or NOT 300gms.
Sold loose (full sheet) 76x56cm or in gummed blocks or pads (A3 ). We will get through a couple of A3’s or equivalent- half the full sheet per day and you can paint on either side for economy.

Careful with old paper it can go mottled. If you have old paper, 2 years+ test it out with water and reject if it is like blotting paper.

2. Sketch pad or note pad

Brushes
Large and medium pointed (pref.soft hair with a point eg squirrel or synthetic squirrel, my favourite is a No 4 Casaneo, Da Vinci brush) a synthetic med and small pointed detail brush and a small (1- 0.5cm) flat stiff synthetic brush. Photo of my brushes on my website under Equipment

Palette - a decent size for mixing large washes

Art Board
large enough to take at least A3 size

Spray Bottle- optional eg small empty from home

Masking Tape – you don’t need to stretch your paper.

Water Container studio- large (at least 1 lt) outdoors small jar eg 500ml

Pencil ( B or 2B) and Eraser (preferably neadable )

Box of tissues or rag/old towel and a small piece of flat kitchen sponge
