Suggesting Materials for Watercolor
For the paints, Beginners and professional artist alike, I suggest the Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor Tubes: Winsor Red, Winsor Yellow, Prussian Blue. If you like to add other colors to your set is totally up to you.
For beginner watercolor learners (like in my watercolor 1 classes), I suggest two pads of Strathmore Serie 400, Cold Press, Watercolor paper pad 9" x 12”. For more dedicated watercolor artists, I would suggest the Arches Watercolor Paper, Cold Press, 140 lb, 22"x30".
1-inch Yasutomo Flat Hake Brush, Robert Simmons filbert brush good for small lifting for lines, and a #12 Sable Round Watercolor Brush. For beginner students I recommend a #12 Raphaël Kaërell Synthetic Sable for Watercolor.
For Watercolor palette, I recommend an 18-Wells Airtight Watercolor Palette for my students. It is compact and has lots of space for mixing colors.
