LIST OF MATERIALS

Recommended list of materials

for my masterclasses

Paper:

If you have some favourite brand of watercolor paper, by all means, use it.

Hot press paper is NOT recommended.

100% cotton 140 pound Rough press (Torchon) paper Saunders or Arches,

size from 11 x 15 to 15 x 22 inch depending on your preference.

My recommendation : Saunders Rought 300 gsm

Brushes:

  • Round paintbrush (or mop) squirrel, goat, or equivalent
    (approximately #12)

  • Round sharp paintbrush (or rigger, liner) (approximately #4)

  • Flat strong brush for watercolor (approximately 3/4“ width).

    In case if you prefer to use the same brushes as me,
    I recommend you take it here:

If you have any favorite brush set feel free to use it.

Asian calligraphy brushes are very welcome (goat, rat, etc).
 

Paint:

I highly recommend Daniel Smith watercolor in tubes.
In case of impossibility, you can use any other professional brand. 
Small sets for travel are NOT recommended.

We need a basic color set + the following colors.
It is highly recommended to have set (we will use it a lot):

  • Quinacridone Sienna

  • Perylene Violet

  • Indigo

  • Cobalt Blue

  • Phthalo Green BS

 

Masking tape, any board for stretch paper, pencil, eraser,
a simple hairdryer and Paper towels.

I recommend to use materials from our site because in that case,

I'll be sure in the quality.
