I was asked recently what kind of supplies I use, and so I thought I'd dig around for the labels on the backs of some of my favorite things.
Watercolour sketchpad. My sketchpad of choice lately has been the Canson All-Media Book. It's acid-free, 90 lb. cold press paper that seems to take everything I throw at it: watercolour, ink, colored pencil, pastel, you name it. Mine's 9" x 12" and has 100 pages. This book is portable and lets me feel a lot freer to be experimental since I don't feel like I'm wasting a big sheet. I actually wish these did come in a bigger size. Which leads me to...
Watercolour pocket box. This is a wonderful travel box of watercolours that you can fit in your pocket. It's the Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colour Sketcher's Pocket Box. (phew!) It has 12 half pans of paint and comes with a tiny brush. When we went to Italy, I brought these and painted all my pictures with these tiny paints. They're really marvelous.
I'm eagerly awaiting my copy of The Watercolor Bible to be amazon-ing its way to me for even more watercolor fun.
I also draw with mechanical pencils, gummy erasers, and paint with whatever brushes are on sale and come in a pack.
What are your faves?
