- Canson Multimedia sketchbook. Love the thicker paper in this sketchbook. I can add watercolor without the pages buckling.
- Fluid Cold Press watercolor paper. I especially love the square shape of this high quality thick watercolor paper!
- Uniball signo 207 bold gel pen. I love how smooth these pens are when I want to add ink details to my paintings.
- Palette with cover.
- Painters tape – to tape down my paper
- Grumbacher watercolor brush. Favorite sizes: 8, 6, 4, and 2
- Van Gogh watercolor paints
- Holbein Gouache mixing set of 5. I love adding the opaque look of gouache to my paintings!
- Derwent drawing pencils. Especially with figures, I like to sketch in pencil before starting a painting.
- Kneaded eraser. For erasing and leaving only faint lines when I begin to paint.
- Paper towel – I have to have a piece of paper towel to suck water off the brush when I need a drier brush. Or to blot the brush after dipping in the water. It’s a good way to check the brush is clean.
- iPad – I do everything on my iPad – google reference photos, take photos, write posts, create digital art, look through and post on Instagram, read WordPress blogs, and more. I made the investment when my Kindle cracked and it was the best thing I did. I couldn’t live without it!
- ZXU Stylus pen – for drawing on the ipad. I use the apps Adobe Draw and Adobe Sketch because they link up with Photoshop and Illustrator on my desktop.
Other stuff in my supply tray:
- Tray from a holiday gift “basket” to hold everything
- Plastic egg container for mixing colors to keep the paints in my palette “pure”
- Back of the watercolor paper pads – to tape down my paper so it doesn’t buckle when it gets wet
- Recycled container (Ricotta or sour cream) for water
- Cracked mug for my brushes. It was too pretty to throw away!
