Painting Supplies:- 

brushes - a large wash brush, a round (about size 8 to 12), a smaller round for details (size 8 or smaller), (flat brush 1/2" optional) 

palette, - notepad/sketchbook, pencil (2B or more), eraser

watercolour paints, (I prefer the Artists' tube paints by Winsor & Newton,) 

recommended colours: Winsor (phthalo) blue (green shade), French Ultramarine, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow Hue, in other words a warm and cool version of each primary colour, as a basic palette, plus optional extras could be: Burnt Sienna, Permanent Sap Green, Dioxazine Purple, Permanent Rose, Quinacridone Gold, Indigo, Burnt Umber. Don'tworry if you don't have all these - just bring what you have. 

We will sometimes paint from live scenes in front of you, or if you prefer you can work from photos - bring your own if you have some you like, or I can provide a choice of reference material.
