Paper:
I am not particular about brushes or paints, but I insist on Arches 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. This is why: it is impossible to do the techniques I teach using cheap paper. You will need 2 sheets (22X30). Do not bring Strathmore of any weight.
Brushes:
Watercolor brushes, including: 1″ flat, #8 or #10 round, a rigger (#2, 3, or 4) and any other brushes you may want to bring. Bring your largest sized brushes, as they will help you to paint more loosely. A scrubber brush (#3, 4, or 6), are useful.
Palette:
A covered palette or a clear or white plastic plate, etc. If you cover it after a painting session, you can reuse the paint. Otherwise, a white china or plastic plate works for a palette.
Paints:
Student or professional grade in a yellow, red, blue, brown. Colors I recommend are: gamboge yellow, Alizarin Crimson or Rose Madder, Ultramarine blue, Burnt sienna, and Hookers Green. Add any of your favorite colors.
A board:
Any firm surface, such as masonite, foamcore, etc. It should be at least 10X12.

The rest:
-A drawing pencil (B or HB or H)
-Sketchbook or loose paper, to take notes and make small sketches.
-Paper towels
-Water container
-Bring refer
ences of your preference.  Look for images with a range of light to dark, big shapes, and interesting compositions.
