WHAT YOU WILL NEED
These are the tools that I recommend you use for this course. It's not necessary to get the exact same brands, or the exact same colors, but these are the ones that I have had the most success with.
Watercolor Paper : I recommend a cold press paper because it is easier for colors to flow on this type of paper. My favorite is Fabriano Artistico 300gsm
Watercolor Paint : I recommend a set of artist grade watercolors, but the class can be completed with student great watercolors if necessary
Watercolor Brushes: I recommend synthetic brushes for the actual mixing and natural hair brushes for the painting process. The class can also be completed using only synthetic brushes.
