If you'd like to join in, here are some items you'll need:

Paper -  

36x28cm, I recommend a cotton based paper, 300gsm - personally I prefer Saunders Waterford, Arches, Fabriano or even Bockingford. I use masking tape to keep it still on a board, which also leave a clean, crisp border once removed.


Medium/Large Mop Brush - perfect for big areas such as sky and foregrond. Squirell hair is best as it holds the most water.

Medium Synthetic Brush - something with a fine point for medium sized areas and smaller details 

Rigger Brush - a longer thin brush, perfect for branches, railings and long thin lines


Chinese White

Ivory Black

Neutral Tint

Grey of Grey (opaque)

Cobalt Blue

Cadmium Yellow

Cadmium Red

Burnt Sienna

Raw Umber

Vandyke Brown

Sap Green

Horizon Blue (opaque)

I mix and match brands of paint between Holbein, Daniel Smith, Schminkie and Winsor & Newton

Other Equipment

Water Pot - I usually use two, one to wash pigment out of a brush, a 2nd to load up with clean water

Atomiser - a fine mist water spray

Tissue - helps to dry a brush if needed, mop up drips

Hairdryer - to speed up the drying process

Pencil - for preliminary sketch

Palette - with several large wells  to ensure enough space for mixing
