MATERIALS

• PAPER: Watercolour paper in at least 200lb weight unless you wish to stretch a lighter paper; or use a watercolour block. Sue uses a Saunders Waterford block, high white NOT surface paper, but Bockingford is an excellent, less expensive alternative. Size approx.12 x 9 inches would be perfect for this exercise.


• PAINTS: Watercolours - Sue mainly uses Daniel Smith, Winsor & Newton and Schmincke. Cotman are a less expensive alternative. Cobalt blue, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, translucent orange, raw sienna or yellow ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber, ultramarine blue,. White gouache paint or Chinese white (if not using masking fluid).


• BRUSHES: Watercolour brushes, a medium round with good point (size 6 – 8), finer detail brush (size 2 or 3), a fine rigger brush. Sable brushes are best for watercolours but modern synthetic ones can be effective and are cheaper.


• OTHER: A drinking straw, palette, drawing board to tape paper to (if not using a block), water pot (2 if possible), HB pencil, kitchen towel. And of course, maybe a fresh scone or two to munch while doing the class. It's a good excuse :)
