Supplies for Anne Patterson's Watercolor Class

What you need to bring: Bring your usual watercolor materials, photographs that are potential resource material for painting. Please bring some masking tape, tracing paper and transfer paper.

These are materials I usually use, BUT ARE NOT REQUIRED THAT YOU HAVE.

Art Xpress Round Kolinsky Sable Brushes Sizes 6, 8 and 10
Loewe Cornell Fabric dye brushes round and flat in a variety of sizes
(I use these for scrubbing and purchase these from the fabric dye section of Michael's.)
For applying liquid maskoid, I use the rubber paint shapers in the softer white rubber. I like 3 or 4 round for this.

I use 140 lb Arches cold ress paper for glazing techniques. For teaching I choose watercolor blocks or sheet paper according to the size of the image.

I use a varity of colors, but always professional grade paint. My favorite basic palette is quinacquidone red or permanent red, scarlet lake, permanent alizaron crimson, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, thalo blue, new gamboge yellow, aureolin yellow, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, and sap green.

If you have any questions, please email Anne at
