Watercolour Paper
Any brand 140 lb. with a medium texture (Cold Press).  
A Watercolour Pad is good for the workshop exercises, suggested size 8” X 10”. I recommend the Fabriano Studio line

N.B.  Paper described as Hot Press is too smooth for this workshop.
Apart from this stipulation, people who already have watercolour supplies are encouraged to bring them along – whatever the colours or brush sizes, we can work with what you have.

Everyone should bring:
A graphite pencil – hard lead, such as 2H, is best


A soft kneadable eraser


A small sponge for cleaning palette after class
