Art Supplies for Kari Anderson Watercolor Workshop

A few sheets of D’Arches 140# cold press watercolor paper

A spray mist bottle, salt, soft pencils, soft erasers, an old toothbrush, masking tape, drawing board or 2, big towel, paper towel, Kleenex, Pebeo masking fluid, Pearl-Ex pigment –Sparkle Gold color

Brushes ~ I use synthetic brushes…. a 1 inch flat, a #8 round, and a #6 rigger or liner.
Plus… whatever other brushes that you are comfortable with…

I recommend tube watercolors. I use mostly Winsor/Newton paints. I like Lucas and Holbein paints as well.

If you are brand new at this, perhaps you should start with Grumbacher Cotman grade paints. That will save you some money. The colors are a bit weaker, and less permanent.

Some of my favorite colors are:
Quinachrodone Gold, Hookers Green, Cerulean Blue, Scarlet Lake, French Ultramarine Blue, Winsor Violet, Naples Yellow.
You don’t need to have every color in the rainbow. Never buy black or white watercolor.

A palette with a lid is very useful. I like the Robert E Wood palette. It has 6 mixing areas and lots of deep paint wells. Remember that watercolor paint can be re-wet every time it dries out in the palette.
