Next weekend we will be giving the Line to Color Workshop, so I am posting the sketching supplies that students will need for the weekend.
|5x8 Sketchbook for ink line drawing preferably with no spiral binding so you can draw across the page.|
|Watercolor sketchbook 5x8 landscape minimum. Larger sizes okay|
|Drawing and painting tools. Binder clips to keep the page secure. Painters tape to create a clean watercolor edge.|
|Water color Palettes|
I used an old Winsor Newton mini travel palette and changed out the colors with my own Daniel Smith Tube Paints. A mint tin with the lid sprayed with white enamel paint makes a nice small palette that you can easily fit in a pocket. A vitamin pill container can be used as well to hold paints but you would need to bring a separate palette to mix and see paints.
|Water bottles and water containers. The bottles are to keep a reserve of clear water, the water container you use for painting. It can be as simple as a hummus container or purchased collapsible containers.|
|Paper towels folded in a tin is a easy way to wipe excess water from your brush. A sponge will work too.|
|Collapsible camp stool that you can purchase at REI or any camping store is good if you need a place to sit.|
