My Materials

I use a water bin, an old listerine bottle to carry water in, masking tape, Winsor and Newton watercolors, white gouache, brushes; mostly Princeton (Princeton 1” flat #4350st) and Robert Simmons white sable (#721 flat, sizes 1/2” and 1/4”), sketchbooks and a small hiking pack they all fit in. The sketchbooks are heavy weight, acid free craft paper made by Canson (can be found as a scrapbook in the photo album section of art and stationary stores). I use the Alvin Heritage Artists Palette. 

You can see numerous demonstrations and a full exploration of my approach in my online course.

The studies are done small and quickly. Most are less than 3x5" and completed in 20 minutes to an hour.
