Materials for Watercolour:

Article text
The Watercolour classes offered on this website are an introduction. The Watercolour Clubs will offer the more experienced learners an opportunity to meet with others interested in the medium and to select their own project work. Materials will be provided for the first beginners class but for all other sessions you will need to bring the following items:

Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour paints - either small tubes or half pans - I suggest the following palette to start with:
Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre
Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, French Ultra Marine
Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson
Burnt Umber

once you have practised mixing colours you may decide to select other hues.

1" Flat or 3/4" Oval Filbert
