Watercolor Materials


I use Saunders Waterford 140lb rough loose sheets. (for workshop students, loose quarter sheets are fine) taped to a light support board. Rough paper is important to my technique. I personally don’t use watercolor blocks. 


I use a variety of pigment brands, mostly Winsor & Newton, Holbein, and Daniel Smith. These brands provide the best quality professional pigments.

My usual palette colors: cad yellow, yellow ochre, burnt umber, burnt sienna, cad orange, cad red, perm aliz crimson, Winsor violet, mineral violet, french ultramarine, cobalt blue, lilac, lavender, cobalt turquoise and neutral tint



I use Escoda Aquario squirrel mops, Escoda Perla synthetic and a variety of brushes from Rosemary & Co, UK
