You may prefer to stand and paint (as I do), or sit and paint. If you prefer to sit at a table as many do, you will need a table easel, or something to prop up behind your board to get a nice slope to paint your watercolours on. If you prefer to stand, a light tripod easel would be suitable and a small table or something to rest your pallet/water/brushes/ etc. on to place alongside your easel would be handy, particularly if we get to paint plein air outside.

1 Roll of 25mm. Masking Tape
1 Medium size board to stick your watercolour onto. (Aprox. 40cm. X 45cm.)
1 2B Pencil and sharpener
1 Kneadable Eraser
1 drawing Pad or drawing paper
1 Pad for notes
A Rag
If we get the chance to go outside to paint some extras would be
Stool, or Easel, Hat, Sunscreen, Insect repellent, Water bottle, (some to drink, some to paint with!)

All of these requirements are only a guide of course, for example if you have some paint sets, or can buy a set of paints a bit cheaper, by all means, bring them along, I am super flexible! Just get what you can afford and we will work together with your equipment.
…. And of course, bring yourself!
