Watercolour On Location 2019 Materials List

Materials required for the course

There is no set materials list for this course but these are the minimum requirements:

  • your normal watercolour kit
  • your normal brush
  • your normal sketchbook
  • a pen with permanent ink (a fineliner or fountain pen)

Grey markers

The only special recommendation for this course is to have some markers to create a 5 step-value scale. Refer to Introduction Part 5 for more information.

Recommended markers:

  • Pitt Pens: Warm Grey 272, 273, 274 and Black 199.
  • Tombow: N75, N65, N45, N15

Note: A minimal marker option would be to purchase a black marker and a mid-grey water-soluble marker. Tombow N65 or Ecoline 718. You can achieve the 3 greys by layering it to create dark grey and adding water to get light grey
