Academy of Botanical Art Supply List: Watercolor I


 
Collapse 


The Watercolor I Objective is to learn the three “P’s” of beginning watercolor: (1) Paints, (2) Paper, (3) Process. This course will introduce the techniques of paint application and the tricks of several pigments. We recommend the items below for their quality. You can add to your supply of paints after you understand basic paint characteristics.

Understanding pigments is as important as learning about watercolor brushes. The watercolor painting brush must have a full barrel to hold the right amount of paint or water and it must spring back into shape when applying pigment. The Academy teaches a two-brush method. Using one brush to hold the paint and the other to hold the water saves you money because you are not always rinsing the paint off your brush and wasting pigment. We recommend purchasing two sets of #00, #0, #1, #2, #3, and #6. Alternately, purchase one set, and an extra #2 or #3. At the very least, start with two #1 and two #3 brushes and two mixing brushes, and build your collection from there.

The COSMOTOP brushes listed are MIXING BRUSHES; the KOLINSKY are PAINTING BRUSHES. The paper on this list requires a ten-sheet minimum order. At the bottom of the order page, you can click on the Paper Selection link and choose from several types. Although we use primarily 140-lb hot press paper as students, you may want to purchase a sheet or two of cold press (we use this in Watercolor IV) and a sheet or two of 300-lb weight papers for later in the program.
