French Ultramarine Blue*

Burnt Sienna

Raw Sienna

Antwerp Blue

Hooker’s Green

Lemon Yellow*

Permanent Rose*

Prussian Blue 

If you want to buy fewer paints to start, please pick three primary colours (a red, blue and yellow, as shown by the asterisk* above). These paints may seem expensive but they will last for a long time. A little goes a long way!

  • 1 Pack of watercolour cards  (For Holiday Cards workshop)

  • 3 Watercolour brushes: a flat (3/4”) and two rounds (#2 and #8)

  • 1 Bottle of art masking fluid (alternate could be liquid frisquet like drawing gum)

  • 1 Bottle of rubber cement

  • 1 Board (like Masonite wood or plastic) to tape your paper to. A good size is 16”x20”. Look around your house for anything flat.

  • 1” Masking tape

  • 1 HB pencil

  • Sketchbook (or paper pad) for drawing

  • White soft eraser

  • Kleenex and/or paper towel
