FAQS & FAVES

Have you signed up for one of my in-person classes for 2017? Are you ready to tackle the supply list but don’t know where to start? Well you are in the right place! Please be sure to refer to your specific class information on the host’s website or registration email you recieved – the supplies may vary slightly!

Remember, these are just suggestions – there is no obligation to buy exactly what I have or through my site. This section is just my way of giving you a peek into what I use and an easy starting point.  If there is something on the supply list that is NOT included in my links, it means it is either an easy item you should be able to buy locally or pull from your current supplies OR it was not available on Amazon.

Just click the + sign to open each section to find the goodness that awaits… oh, and then click on an item and away you go!

One more clerical thing – I am not responsible for broken links, incorrect/defective/unsatisfactory product orders, or delays in shipping. It is YOUR responsibility to double-check what you are buying. Totally a dorky thing to have to include but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! Read disclosure area for more details…

FAVES

Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links in my FAVS and on some parts of my website are “affiliate links.”

This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Artist-grade watercolors I currently use two brands of watercolors, Daniel Smith tube watercolors and Sennelier pan watercolors. Both are higher-end watercolors and are an investment. If you do not have experience with watercolors, you can use a set you have on-hand but you may be able to create, blend or lift colors as do in my class videos and in-person classes. If you have taken my previous classes, I have recommended the Grumbacher Transparent Pan Watercolors. This is still a great set and a good place to start BUT I will not be using them in my videos or in my in-person classes. We are taking it up a notch this year.

  • Daniel Smith Tube Watercolors By far my most favorite paints. The colors are stunning and so full of life! You’ll have to build your own set with these. I suggest going in on tubes with friends and sharing via mail. I will show you how I set up my palette in class. You’ll also see “dot” color charts if you click on the link. These dot charts are a great way to try out the paints and probably have enough to paint a few illustrated animals and figure out how seriously awesome the paints are!
  • Sennelier Pan Watercolors These pan watercolors are stunning. Super rich deep color pigment and they travel really well. There are several different colors and you can pop out different colors and replace them with new faves as you use them and get to know them. You can also pop them out and put them in whatever order you like. This is a MUST for me!
  • Grumbacher Transparent Watercolor Set This is a newbie set. If you have been using these for a while, it’s time to take it up a notch. If you don’t want to invest and want to buy something – buy these. Be sure to buy the TRANSPARENT SET!!

FAQS

One of the most common questions that pop into my inbox is concern that my online course content will be repetitive. Here’s my answer…

A. For the most part, sorta.

I work very hard to ensure that you learn something new in every class. And it’s as much for you as it is for me. Teaching the same thing over and over is mind-bogglingly awful for me. As a matter of fact, my closest friends are on high-alert to remind me that I need NOT reinvent my creative-wheel for each class.

Heck, it took my almost a half-decade to get here so it might take a a while to really “get” how I do stuff, right? So if you like the way I create art, reinforcement of my common practices are a really, really good thing!

So with that said, each class has common threads running through them because that is what makes my art mine. BUT there is ALWAYS a happy twist – usually the finished project you take home with you or complete during the course of the online class or DVD.

So sign up for all of them, my friends! And if this doesn’t convince you, ask on social media – your fellow artists are sure to have an opinion!

And this goes for my book and dvd’s too! But always ask online to get the opinion of others – I am somewhat biased!
