Hearding, Catherine – Watercolor (all)

  • 2B drawing pencil
  • Tracing paper
  • Sketch book
  • Tape (artist’s or masking tape)
  • Permanent black marker
  • Ruler
  • Paper towels or rags
  • 2 containers for water
  • Palette (plastic or butcher’s tray enamel)
  • Small pump spray bottle
  • Students may bring photos or ideas that they wish to work with. It can be anything: floral, still life, landscape or even a non-objective design.
  • Professional Grade tube watercolors  – Good choices of brands include: Winsor Newton, Holbein, Daniel Smith, DaVinci, or M. Graham
    • Recommended Colors: These are colors that I work with, but you may have colors in your paint box that                            will work just fine. What you should have is a warm and cool version of the three primary colors.
      • Permanent Rose
      • Winsor Red or Pyrrol Red
      • Winsor Yellow, Hansa Yellow or Cadmium Yellow
      • Aureolin
      • Prussian Blue, Antwerp or Winsor Blue
      • Cobalt Blue
  • Brushes
    • 1″ or 2″ wash brush
    • #10 or #12 round watercolor brushes
  • Paper: Paper is your most important supply. Please purchase a professional grade paper, if at all possible. The resulting paintings will be far superior and the process less frustrating for you.
    • You can purchase individual sheets and cut to size:
      140# cold press watercolor paper. (Arches, Winsor Newton, Fabriano or Lanaquarelle)
    • OR purchase a Watercolor block (Arches, Fabriano, Lanaquarelle, or Winsor Newton) 9″ x 12″ size or larger works well.
  • If using sheet paper, please have a drawing board to tape your paper to.
