Course Information

Tony Haskell will give tuition in a small group of just 12-14 painters.

Recommended materials to bring with you:

There are three main types of watercolour paper available, hot press, not and rough.  Tony suggests you use the middle range, ‘NOT’, which can be bought at any art suppliers in spiral bound pads containing around 12 sheets of 140lb (300gsm) plus ideally, a sketcher’s watercolour pocket box containing about 12 pans with ideally a thumb ring for ease of use when painting outside.

You will also need at least three brushes, preferably sizes 12, 8 and 4 and a waterproof ink pen with my preferred pen being a Pilot DR Drawing Pen in 0.3, 0.5 and 0.8 tips.
