Glenn Blue: WATERCOLOR SECRETS YOU WILL LEARN: SUPPLY LIST FOR WINTER WORKSHOP 2018- W.8

A large open mind free from prior contamination.
Basically, bring your regularly used materials but include the following:
Paper: For successful paintings your paper matters:
Several sheets of watercolor paper, preferably quarter sheet but no bigger than half sheets (or Arches watercolor blocks about 12×16) Glenn prefers brands Sauders Waterford rough texture and Aches 140 or 300 lbs cold press and rough press. No Hot Press. Do try to get these good quality papers, it does make a difference! Cheap Canson and Waterford are not helpful.
Gator board or similar board (to attach your paper on.) Bring about 4 or 5 boards, so we can work on a few at a time.
Soft pencil. I prefer mechanical pencils of 9mm. no harder than HB, a B, 2B works well.
Gum eraser.
***Brushes (one of the most important tools: “The bigger the better”. I like squirrel mop type brushes for big washes and something like a nylon “Perlas” for details. Get some big mops or rounds at least a #12. Always try to use the biggest brush possible. Cheap small brushes are a stumbling block for any artist!
Paint: Brands are not too important, but should not be student grade. Also color is not as important as value. If you can, try to have at least ULTRAMARINE, COBALT BLUE, BURNT SIENNA, RED (not a rose color), YELLOW OCHRE and a CAD YELLOW. I also like to use COBALT TURQUOISE, SEPIA, CERRULEAN BLUE and ANTWERP BLUE. But if you do not want to spend the money, just bring what you have.
**A MUST: squirt bottle: for water (like an empty Windex bottle or similar.)
Tissues and paper towels and lastly — Razor blade
