Watercolor Supplies

- 1 palette for your colors and for mixing. I have the bigger one but the small one works too. You can purchase a different model, as well it has a cover to protect your paint and small area for the colors. 

- 1 Water container

- 1 Water spray bottle

- 1 roll paper towel

- 1 masking tape (1” wide or more)

- 1 strong board minimum size 10” X 13” or masonite sketch board

- 1 note book

- 1 pencil

- 1 eraser


Paint

Buy the professional quality paint even if you are beginner. You get what you pay for.

The cheaper brands have more fillers and the colors will fade quickly. Winsor & Winton or Daniel Smith are recommended.

I prefer the paint in tube (right) and I pour them in my palette. It takes at least 2 days to dry. You can buy them in pan (left) as well and it save you the time to dry. This is not cheaper.

- Cadmium Yellow Light

- Permanent orange

- Permanent rose

- Cerulean Blue

- Ultramarine or Blue cobalt


Brushes

I prefer natural brush, many artist use synthetic brush and they work fine.

- 1 round brush size 0 or 2

- 1 round brush size 4

- 1 round brush size 10


Paper

I use the brand Arches for my fine Art and any cheaper brand (ex:Strathmore or Canson) for experimentation.

- 1 pad 9 X 12 watercolor Arches , cold press (140lbs)

- 1 pad 9 X 12 watercolor Strathmore, cold press (140lbs)
