d’Lauren Fine Arts Watercolor Supply List
Most of these can be found locally in Reno at Nevada Fine Arts
Preferred palette is Frank Web -- if you want to use a white ceramic dinner plate that works as well. Small palettes are problematic, but come in handy for in the field or backpacking, etc.
For plein aire or art hikes try to find a smaller palette that folds, and has a thumb hole in it for holding. Or you can use a foam disposable plate and cover with saran wrap.
Paints – tubed watercolors
(Grumbacher, Academy, Daniel Smith, Holbein or Windsor Newton’s Finest is preferred)
Permanent Rose (or Alizeron Crimson)
Antwerp Blue (sub = Prussian Blue)
Cadmium Yellow or New Gambouge (open it and make sure it's a bright yellow first, I use Daniel Smith of Van Gogh)
Brushes: 1-inch square sable or sablette, #8 round sable or sablette (and a #4 round if you are into detail)
140 lb cold press paper (prefer Arches, other’s ok. Canson & Fabriano student grade is ok-I would avoid other brands personally)
Two water buckets (one large and one yogurt sized)
1 flat household sponge – (no soap) pencils, kneaded or Mars eraser
paper towels and tissue
Palette rental and medium paper (student grade) available for $8
Just the palette? $8 MUST RESERVE IN ADVANCE OF THE CLASS
For Plein Aire outtings bring :
Polarizing sunglasses, beach or camping chairs, flat surface to paint on (clipboards, large or small or plywood work well), your own gallon of water, food to nosh, drinks, sunscreen, etc. Anything you would need for a day at the beach type supplies.
