Supply List – Watercolor 6-week Artist Series

Varvara Harmon Watercolor Series

Artists can get materials in local art stores or from www.jerrysartarama.com and www.dickblick.com.

I use Windsor Newton watercolor paints primarily, but would not hesitate to use Grumbacher, or Cotman (for students).
