Art Materials required to bring to the class:
1. Paper: Artists should bring their favorite paper and size. I’d recommend starting with at least 18x24 as we want to start painting big and bold. Best brands are Arches and Fabriano - cold press 140 or 300lb. Rough watercolor paper will add texture to your washes and hot press paper, with its very slick surface, tends to make colors appear brighter, so they will also be easier to lift off. Cold press paper is somewhat in between rough and hot press. Again, the basic Strathmore 18x24 pad should be OK. The artist personally prefer cold press.
2. Board: It’s also good have the same or slightly larger size board (masonite) to attach your paper with masking tape. We’ll work on the tables, so it may not be necessary, but if working on an easel, you need a sturdier backing.
3. Paint: Any brand you like would be OK as long as you have the basic set of colors. I prefer tubes, because you can get as much paint as you want for larger areas. Turner Watercolor set from Jerry’s Artarama is excellent.
4. Masking fluid – In order to preserve our whites on the paper, sometime we use masking fluid
5. Palette: make sure you have a flat area to mix your colors - Guerrilla Painter Backpacker Watercolor Palettes available at Jerry’s is pretty good:
6. Brushes: You need at least 3 – all of them soft with a point - large, medium and small for details. You can add a bigger flat one if you’d like, but basically you can do everything with the three round and pointy.
7. Rag: Lastly, we need a rag – any cotton fabric should be good. Paper towel could work too, but is not as absorbent asa cloth.
8. Container for Water
