Six Windsor & Newton professional tube paints…

  • French Ultramarine
  • Cerulean Blue

  • Quinacridone Gold
  • Raw Sienna
  • Burnt Sienna

Large round pointed brushes (I use sizes 12-18 bought from the craft department of Bunnings for under $5 each).

White mixing plates… melamine, or china. Not plastic! $2 shops sell the melamine ones for around $3.

A3 and A4 watercolour paper bought from an art shop (plenty of other paper about that promises everything and is a waste of money).

Pencil. Not too hard, not too soft. 2B or thereabouts.
