Traveling With Your Sketchbook Supplies with Susan Abbott
Small ring bound sketchbook, such as 6” x 6” or 7” x 10” Canson field sketchbook or Holbein multimedia drawing sketchbook—sized under 7” x 10”
2 or more permanent (waterproof) black felt tip markers
Sizes fine and/ or medium. Faber-Castell PITT brand if possible. Optional extra colors: red or sanguine
HB or B pencil
Glue stick and scissors
A small empty white plastic folding palette and the following pigments:
Permanent Yellow or Cadmium Yellow Pale or any primary yellow
Yellow Ochre or Raw Sienna
Permanent Red or Cadmium Red or any “orangish” red
Alizarin Crimson or Thalo Red or any “purplish” red
Ultramarine Blue or any primary blue
Thalo Blue or Winsor Blue or Prussian Blue or any greenish dark blue
Fill the stall in your palette a few days ahead so that the paint dries before class.
Note: Watercolor supplies come in student or professional grades. Student grades (such as “Cotman”) are less expensive, but the color and handling are inferior to better quality paint. Buy professional brand paint, and if cost is a factor, buy just 3 primary colors (Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Thalo or Winsor Blue, and Permanent Yellow) in professional grade paint. If you already have a palette set up with watercolors, you can use that.
Round watercolor brush— small (not tiny). A #6 Winsor & Newton round Sceptre series brush is a good choice (Don’t get a cheap brush like squirrel’s hair that will be too limp.)
OR colored pencils or water-soluble pencils if you want to use these instead of watercolor
The kit includes the underlined items.
Cost is $104.06 plus sales tax of $6.24 for a Total = $ 110.30
