Board to mount watercolor paper…gator board, foam board, or Masonite
Graphite paper to transfer drawing
Inexpensive pad of watercolor paper (Strathmore or Masters Touch)
1 sheet of 140lb Arches rough watercolor paper
Paints: you may use whatever you have. For a beginner that is not sure about watercolor, you can purchase a small student grade paint. Masters Touch or Reeves 8pk tube watercolors are available at Hobby Lobby.
If you know you want to pursue watercolor, I recommend professional grade tube watercolors. Da Vinci, Daniel Smith, American Journey, Winsor Newton, etc.…These are the ones I use most often…
New Gamboge Quin Gold
Aureolin Burnt Sienna
Yellow Ochre Joe’s Red (American Journey)
Burnt Umber Cobalt Blue
Permanent Alizarin Crimson Phthalo Blue
Ultramarine Blue Mauve (Da Vinci)
Brushes: any watercolor brushes you have will do. I mostly use #1 liner, 12” round, flat wash brush 1” or 1 ½”, various flat brushes for lifting.
