I DO ENCOURAGED YOU TO BRING SOME
I CAN PROVIDE SOME BUT YOU NEED TO BUILD UP YOUR OWN REFERENCES.
ESPECIALLY THE MORE ADVANCED PAINTERS.
The beginning of each class is a
of the homework from the week
before-two classes for
the price of one.
GRISAILLE. A style of painting using only grey tints and giving theeffect of sculpture in relief.

SO ARE WE.
So listen to the radio on storm days please.
I will not call to remind you of this on the storm day.
NORA'S SUPPLY LIST
You can get away with a lot of things but NOT inferior watercolour paper. Quality is a MUST and I carry paper with me for you at Cost. A 200 lb. paper that does not need to be taped down.
Watercolour brushes please-trust me, there is a difference from acrylic brushes. Personally I use flat brushes most of the time, a one inch wide metal base and a one inch long bristle, also a half inch brush. You should also have round brushes in 4, 10 and one small enough to sign your name.
A larger palette with a lid is preferable but you may prefer the more inexpensive with the self folding lid.
YOU can get away with student quality paint like Cotman. I do not use it. I use artist quality paint, mostly Winsor Newton or Holbein.
You don't need a huge amount of colours to achieve a variety-you mix them
Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue
New Gamboge & Aureolin - yellows
Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna
Permanent Alizarin, Permanent Rose
With those you can do wonders. There are other colours I use and you may want to get those when you see if you like or want them.
