Grahame will use 140lb Millford NOT paper along with a variety of brushes from Rosemary and Co. Any good quality watercolour paper, rough or NOT (cold pressed) can be used but make sure you have at least one or two well pointed round brushes as well as a swordliner or rigger for the smaller branches and twigs.
Grahame will be using his usual palette which consists of:
French ultramarine, phthalo blue GS, cobalt blue, cerulean blue, cadmium red, quinacridone magenta, burnt sienna, cadmium yellow, quinacridone gold, aureolin, naples yellow and white gouache. He will not use all of these colours in the painting.
Do not feel you must use the same materials. It is better that you use paint and materials you are familiar with. A water spray will also be used along with kitchen roll.
