Achieving Dramatic Effects in Watercolor, Peter Ulrich
(This is just what I use and is not a requirement for the class)
Sketch pad, medium sized such as 11 ” x 14″
Sharpie Black ink pen, ultrafine point
COLORS: (Winsor & Newton, DaVinci, Daler Rowney are all good – buy Artist Quality not Student Quality). Asterisks denote starter set.
Payne’s Gray (strongly suggest Winsor & Newton; all others are too dull)
New Gamboge* and/or Quinacridone Gold
Cadmium Red Light*
VanDyke Brown* (or Burnt Umber)
For example: Silver Black Velvet round (my current favorite), Robert Simmons “Goliath” (#26 or larger) or the “Faux Squirrel” #1827 by Dynasty (#18 or 20)
PALETTE – John Pike or similar style palette with big center mixing area and cover to keep paint fresh
PAPER –Top quality 100% cotton rag paper like Arches (140 pound cold-pressed or rough), either full sheets (22”X30”) torn into ½ or ¼ sheets, or a 12”X16” block (about equivalent to a quarter-sheet) with glued edges (more expensive than sheets).
Viva paper towels or some brand that is equally soft and free from embossing
