Buildings 2016 Materials List

< BACK TO BUILDINGS 2016 CLASSROOM

 

As this is predominately a concept course to help you see buildings better, there are no special materials requirements for this course.

It is recommended that you use the tools and materials that you are most familiar with.

 

Basic Requirements

  • A medium to hard pencil (HB-2H).
  • A fine pen – such as a 0.3 fineliner or fountain pen (EF or F nib) with permanent ink if you plan to add watercolour washes over the top. More about Fountain Pens here.
  • Some form of colour (watercolour pencils or watercolour paint or coloured pencils or markers).
  • Paper suitable for your choice of medium.
