Sealable palette - Mijello Martin airtight watercolor 18 well palette. OR

I sourced all above on Amazon
Paper & Supports: Arches 140# Hot press paper (standard sheets are most economical - to be cut down) or Cottonwood Arts Laminated Cold Press sheets (available through their website) 9 x 12 inches.
Brushes: A selection of cheap synthetic flat wash & angled shaders. Sizes between 1/4inch to 1 inch (Princeton 3750). Really, any flat synthetic brush will work. I have several of each of the following sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.
You will also need a couple of pointed rounds (also synthetic), sizes: 0 and 2 for painting details.
Any quality brand: Winsor & Newton, Daniel Smith, M. Graham, Holbein (avoid acryla gouache).
Modified palette: (From these you can create essential color mixes)
The Full Monty Palette: (In addition to those above). Below is NOT required, but if you want to beef up your palette for this and following topic series..... just sayin’.
Backing board & Tape - for watercolor sheet segments, not necessary if you are using a watercolor block or laminated boards.
Two water containers
Sponge or blotting cloth (to clean brushes)
Sketch paper & pencil
