PAINTS

Although artist-grade watercolors can be pricey, I highly recommend investing in a set. They last forever and produce significantly better results than student grade. Consider finding friends to share the tubes! The more the merrier!

  • Daniel Smith Tube and Stick Watercolors
  • Greenleaf Blueberry Pan Watercolors

Although Danielle prefers the brands above, there are others that will produce high-quality art:

  • Sennelier Pans
  • Winsor Newton Artist Grade
  • Winsor Newton Gouache
  • Hoblien Gouache
  • Hoblein Acryla-Gouache
  • Liquitex Fluid Acrylics

PAPERS

The type of paper you use is equally as important as the watercolors. It can make your work shine, or make it impossible to love. My choices seem to change all the time so check back often to see what I am using IN THE STUDIO now!

Pencils, pens + brushes

One of the most asked questions on social media is, “What kind of pen do you use?”. They are always surprised with my answer – a mechanical pencil! That doesn’t mean I don’t like to use other stuff, so check out the lists below to see what I have in glass jars and pencil cases tucked IN MY STUDIO.
