Course Materials


CREATIVE ESSENTIALS | All of my classes require the following supplies 

Artist-grade watercolors (pan or tube)
Watercolor-only brushes
Artist-grade paper (140 lb., cold press)
Mechanical Pencil (.3 mm lead) and white vinyl eraser
White ink marker (fineline)
Mixing palette with wells (or Lap-size white erase board if you prefer)
Clear jar/clean water
Paper towels
Table salt
Optional, but often handy: ruler, white artist tape and glue, scraps of patterned paper, and a paper trimmer or scissors

The following Daniel Smith Paint Colors  are used for the limited palettes over the course of the five lessons but feel free to substitute what you have on your current palette! In addition to the paints, you’ll find a few additional supplies or books I have mentioned or used in the videos. Again, I always suggest using what you have on hand while you watch through the videos for the first time, then reviewing this list again to see what you can’t live without!
