Supply Lists

WATERCOLOR / MIXED MEDIA

Bring any supplies you already have collected; and here are a few more. We will be discussing supplies at our first meeting. Please do not go out and buy a huge collection of paints.

  • Paper: I strongly recommend us using a good quality rag paper, such as Arches or Fabriano. 140 # cold press and Lanaquarelle hot press 140#. For this class; a minimum of 4 @ 22” x 30” sheets of each; we will tear down as needed. The most economical way to buy paper is in packs of 25 sheets of 22″ x 30″. Please no blocks.
  • Paint: USE GOOD PROFESSIONAL GRADE PAINT! Again, please do not go out and buy a huge collection of paints – bring what you have.
  • Paint Colors: (Daniel Smith Artists’ Materials and Windsor Newton names listed here) Rose Madder Genuine, Permanent Rose, Cadmium Red, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Aureolin Yellow, New Gamboge, Yellow Ochre, Quinachrodone Gold, Azo Yellow

, Windsor Orange, Quinachrodone Burnt Orange, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue, Indanthrone Blue, Sap Green, Rich Green Gold, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Quinn Gold, Cobalt Turquoise Light, Indigo, Neutral Tint.
  • Large Palette: 11″ x 15″ or so with large mixing areas, such as Richeson or Robert Wood
  • Metal Ceramic Tray for mixing
  • Brushes: Please do not go out and buy a huge collection of brushes yet. Part of the emphasis of the class involves keeping your paintings simple, so you won’t need tiny brushes. (Well, maybe one!) I use: up to 3 flats (½″, 1″ and 1½″), 2 rounds (#30 – or the largest round you can find and #14), 1½” angled brush (Princeton Brand), pack of 3 Scroggy Loos Goose brushes (Dick Blick), liner, riggers.
  • Miscellaneous: 
Lightweight board (masonite or gatorboard, 16″ x 24″)
  • Tape: Artist’s tape or acid-free black masking tape (blue painter’s tape is okay, though a bit distracting)
