Recommended materials

• PAPER: Tape a piece of watercolour paper, approx 6 x 7 ins, to a board or stiff card. Barry will be using ROUGH but NOT or Cold Pressed will also work well as there is a lot of texture in this scene. At this stage it would be a good idea to have a slightly larger piece of paper to work on as there would then be room to try out your colour mixes beforehand if you so wish.

• PAINTS: Barry recommends using Artists quality watercolours as we will be wanting maximum transparency in our colours and the cheaper brands add binders and fillers to keep prices low . Barry uses Schmincke Horadam Artists Watercolours.
