Nature's Patterns and Textures in Watercolor
June 22-26, 2014
Supply List
Paper- 1 sheet of Arches watercolor paper, 260lb cold press, (I’ll demonstrate on 1/2 sheet -20×26”)This paper can be tough
to find. We’ll probably have some available to purchase at the workshop.
Painting board- 3/4” sealed plywood board to stretch your paper. ( I use a 24×30” piece of birch-faced 3/4” plywood,
sanded and sealed with polyurethane)These are not commercially available, so you may want to make your own. (My
teenager makes awesome painting boards.) We may have her boards pre-stretched with paper available to rent or purchase at
the workshop, but it’s best to call ahead if you know you want one. They sell out fast!
Palette – I use a Quiller palette, but any large watercolor palette will do.
Water containers – at least 2
Paper Towels
o 3 Round watercolor brushes, pick a small, medium and large, also a 2” flat wash brush
o 1 small, cheap brush for masking fluid.
Masking fluid
Paint – Here is a short list of colors I am currently using and recommend for the workshop. Feel free to add any other colors
you like.
Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Med Hue, Isoindoline Yellow, Cadmium Orange Hue, Perinone Orange, Pyrrol Orange,

Any other watercolor supplies you normally use. Aka: kneaded eraser, exacto knife, masking tape…
Before you rush out and spend a fortune on art supplies, check with us. We may be able to offer a less expensive alternative.
We should have all of these supplies available at the workshop, unless we’re flying….so if you want a painting board, it’s
best to let us know in advance.
