ART EQUIPMENT LIST

WATER COLOUR PAPER
Buy 300gsm weight. Bockingford, Cotman or Daler Rowney are good.

PAINTS
I use Winsor & Newton Paints tablet or pan, but tubes are fine too. A box of twelve Cotman half pan water colour paints are a good starting point.

BRUSHES
You will need a small round (1) maybe a (5) and a larger round (10) or (12). Again, buy decent quality sable or weasel such as Cotman or ProArte.

PALETTE
I love my ceramic daisy palette!

PASTELS
They come in two main types: hard or sketching pastels (usually small and square) or soft (larger and wrapped in paper). Very cheap can be nasty and no fun to use

PENCILS
A 2B for sketching and a 9B for drawing. You can but more but don’t bother with all the grades inbetween.

OTHER STUFF
A cartridge paper sketchbook for drawing. Acrylic eraser. Small box of vine charcoal. Water soluble colour pencils. Putty rubber. Craft knife for sharpening pencils.
