Let’s talk about the supplies needed for this ink and wash drawing course – you may already have plenty at home you can use! I always encourage trying out what you’ve got whenever possible.
I retain the copyright to the content you are learning in class. That means…
However…I love to see students making strides and taking this teaching and personalizing it with your own skills.
At the bottom of each lesson you’ll see some ways to share your homework and ask questions, so that’ll be handy for you.
The promo video on the class page teased a longer view at the garden….here you go!
Let’s talk about what’ll be used in class. Remember you CAN use whatever watercolors, brushes, and sketchbook you already have. But these are the items I’ll be using – not just for class but this spring and summer!
As with all my classes, use supplies you love, being prepared for different results. (Which is not a bad thing!)
Daniel Smith Watercolors:
Brushes – the travel versions are more expensive but smaller ones. Let them dry well, flat, when you get back from sketching.
Chair: this hunting stool has a big pocket that my zipper pack and water bottle fit in; the sketch easel travels in the folded “seat.”
I’m an advocate for your local independent art store! If you’re shopping there, print this out and take it with you; the clerk will be happy to help you out! (The chair and easel they won’t have. The chair can be found at a sporting goods shop in the hunting section; the sketch easel is NOT necessary for class but I only found it on Etsy.)
Feel free to make one of these if you wish – or not. 🙂
