One Rose Four Ways: Preclass

Below are links to the supplies I’ve used for this class. Compensated affiliate links may used, which means if you make a purchase I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. 

In lesson 1, I’ll be supplying a digi image of the rose, and a link to the photo from PMP (so go sign up for a free account there) – you can transfer the image to your paper by printing (for copic or pencil), using graphite or other transfer paper, using a lightbox, or by putting the paper and print up to a window to trace it. 


Conte Sketching pencils in black (2B), a White Pitt pencil – softblending stumps, toned sketchbook. (I’m using grey but there’s also a tan.)


Stonehenge paper – a regular pad, or I’m using this spiral sketchbook. Polychromos (Blick, Amazon) colors are shown here – you can substitute with whatever brand you want to use.

Copic Sketch Markers R05, Salmon Red —-  Y17, Golden Yellow —-  R89, Dark Red —-  R59, Cardinal —- R37, Carmine —- YR04, Chrome Orange —- YG23, New Leaf —- YG99, Marine Green —- YG95, Pale Olive 

Daniel Smith Watercolors: Anthraquinoid Scarlet —-  Aussie Red Gold —- Sap Green —- Silver Brush Black Velvet Watercolor Brushes, Short Round 8 –—  Short Round 12 —- and Cold Press Watercolor Paper Pad 9×12 

You can use your own desired paper, but recommended are a toned drawing paper – not all are made equal, and I find Stillman and Birn are a very consistent good paper,and they come in tan and grey in a variety of sizes. Stonehenge is for the colored pencil lesson; if you have a pad with regular sheets or a sketchbook like shown, both are super. For Copic, use the paper you are used to using; I like Neenah. For watercolor, choose cold press or rough, but do use a good quality paper to get good results.
