Watercolor Materials

PAPER

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. 

PIGMENT

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

 

BRUSHES

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