Plein Air Workshop Supply List

The supply list is just a suggestion. Supplies are expensive so don’t feel you need to go out and replace all of your equipment! The list is what I use and will be demonstrating with. It will be easier to do the exercises if you can bring supplies that are somewhat similar. These are my personal preferences. The only things I’d like you to bring verbatim from the list are the items under the ‘SKETCHBOOKS AND MARKERS’ and ‘SOLVENT & MEDIUM’ sections. We’ll do some of our most important studying using the sketchbook and markers. “Start strong end strong!”
