Abstracting with Acrylic: Emphasis on Composition, Marsha Staiger
Fluids: Heavy body tubes:
Primary Yellow Ultramarine Blue
Primary Magenta Cadmium Red Light
Primary Cyan Yellow Ochre
Zinc White Burnt Sienna
GAC 500 or Gloss medium
Sketchbook 9” x 12” (or a size you have)
Construction paper multiple colors and black white
Graphite and eraser
Water-soluble graphite 6B
An assortment of 3 bristle brushes for heavier marks, sizes should vary from smaller to large.
Synthetic brushes are helpful with softer application of washes of thinned paint #12 (7/8” brush width) or up to a #16 (1inch 1/16 width).
I do like wider brushes 2 inch to 3 inch, hake are goat hair and reasonable. They tend to lose hair after lots of use but lay down a nice wash. This can happen with your sponge as well but the sponge may produce bubbles.
4 canvases, 12” x 12” (or ones that you have)
4 pieces of watercolor paper, 22” x 30” (I like Strathmore Aquarius II, info at the end of list)
A board or cardboard a little bigger than 22” x 30” to tape your paper to.
4 clips to hold paper onto board (or use tape)
Frog Tape for edges of paper and masking techniques
Porcelain Palette or palette paper with a board to put paper on
Clean small sponge (great for putting water down)
Paint Bar or brush cleaner
Smaller spritzer for rubbing alcohol, 70% or 90%. (The bottle usually accepts a spritzer from a Windex bottle)
Small spritzer bottle for water
500 Series Aquarius II Watercolor
weight: 80lbs (22″ x 30″) 170 g/m2)
Surface: Cold Press
This unique lightweight sheet is made with a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers. This fiber combination allows this sheet to resist buckling and the need for stretching when applying light to medium washes. The lightly textured cold press surface is excellent when combining drawing media with watercolor and for fine detail work. Sheet stock has two deckle edges.
The kit includes the underlined items.
Cost is $244.01 plus sales tax of $14.64 for a Total = $ 258.65
