This one day workshop is suitable for relative beginners as well as experiences sketchers. We’ll look at a range of sketching and drawing techniques and tools, work through a great travel sketching watercolour palette and hopefully get outside to work on location wiht what we’ve covered. It will be a busy workshop and Jane will have lots tools for you to try out.

* Watercolour sketchbook/Notebook – ideally a watercolour paper notebook so you can keep a record of colour wheels, mixing charts and so on in one place OR use a notebook just for notes and get a 185GSM medium watercolour pad in A5 size and build a loose leaf system. Recommended watercolour notebooks are Stillman & Birn Alpha (I love their 9” x 6” landscape book) or Moleskine watercolour notebook in A5 landscape. Handbook also make a nice watercolour notebook or Pentallic or Winsor & Newton. A5 is a good size to explore but chose your favourite format
* Watercolours and Palette – minimal 12 colours for the workshop. (Also see my ‘Ultimate Mixing Set’ on my website, which has all the colours in bold plus Jane’s Grey in Daniel Smith watercolours.) Please use Artist Quality in which ever brand you choose. I recommend Daniel Smith, though if you have others that is fine. Choose a palette you like - if you want you can wait to set it up in the course. There are lots on info on palette options on my website.
*** Cool or mid yellow preferably transparent, preferably not cadmium yellow (eg Hansa Yellow Medium (or Hansa Yellow Light if you prefer a cool rather than a mid yellow)
*** Warm yellow preferably transparent, preferably not a Cadmium yellow (eg Hansa Yellow Deep, New Gamboge, Indian yellow, Quinacridone Gold

* Brushes You can use whatever you have but a suggestion is
*** two round brushes of approx. size 4 and 8, though sizes vary considerably between brands and a ¼” flat brush for painting the colour charts. (Travel brushes are fine –consider Da Vinci, Rosemary & Co or Escoda)
*** Larger flat wash brush of up to 1” or mop brush squirrel or synthetic.
* Pencils B or 2B and pen for writing and drawing – waterproof black felt tip useful, and other pens or fountain pens if you have them.
* Ruler
* Sponges – natural preferred. Available from art shops or pharmacy/drug store. Not needed until lesson 3.
* Paper towel.
* Two water containers – 2KG yogurt or 2L ice cream containers excellent
* Optional – Spray water bottle
* Optional – masking tape. You may choose to use masking tape to protect the edges of your paintings. I don’t, but some like to.
--The best materials are the ones you actually enjoy using and this will be partially an experiential workshop so you can try techniques and materials for yourself before you decide to buy them.
--So - I will have samples sketching materials for you to try so don’t feel you have to buy a load of materials you may not use. Bring what you have rather than rushing out to buy more and just buy what you need in the workshop.
