Jim Himsworth Watercolor Workshop
Suggested Supply List

Bring two water containers, paper towels, one roll of 1" Artist's (White) tape, one pencil and rubber eraser, a W/C palette and masking fluid

Paper: Rough or Cold Pressed Arches, Fabriano or Kilimanjaro - 300# is best. 140# is acceptable, but may buckle - especially when unstretched.  Be advised, if you choose to use a 140# watercolor block, some buckling may still occur, although not as much as unstretched 140# paper. Consider using Gatorboard - it's a lightweight, acid-free stiff board on which to secure and stretch W/C paper. Size: Most of our paintings will be smaller; so you may divide up a larger sheet by cutting or with Artist's 1" tape.

Brushes: # 4, 8 and 12 round. At least one, 1 inch or larger flat brush. Usually the more expensive the brush, the better it holds its shape and the better it holds water. That said, we will work with whatever W/C brushes you bring. *You may want to bring a cheap small round brush for applying masking fluid as well.

Tube Colors: Again, these colors are suggested, but bring your favorites if you prefer.           My current, favorite brands are M. Graham Co. and Winsor & Newton.
