For supplies all you will need is some watercolor paints (tubes, pans or both), a variety of paint brushes, a cup of water, paper towel, watercolor paper (I will be using Canson XL in coldpress) and you also can use masking tape or washi tape if you want to mask your edges. I will be referencing two images for next week's paint with me class on watercolor sunsets. Both images are from Unsplash.com and can be downloaded here and here. Feel free to print them if you have access to a printer, otherwise even having them on your computer or phone can be helpful. Stay tuned for a post tomorrow on how to loosely sketch your landscape onto your watercolor paper before you paint. This is an optional process, but one that I practice as I like to have starting lines for my paintings. Until then, let me know what questions you have in the comments!
