Painting Equipment Required
Jill says :
I work mainly with water-colour, pencil, ink, charcoal and pastel, therefore the equipment list below is biased towards materials for water-colour and drawing. However, I have also worked with oils and acrylics so, if you wish to come to paint in those media, just ignore the list below and bring whatever materials you want!
You need to bring:
Sketch pad (A5)
H and 2B Pencils + pencil sharpener and putty eraser
Fine drawing pens (005) - sepia and black
Watercolours minimum selection = ultramarine, cobalt, lemon yellow, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, burnt umber
Watercolour paper (Bockingford 'NOT' 140 lb or similar) - size A5 and A4
Masking tape (1")
Masking fluid (not essential)
Watercolour brushes, sizes 6, 8, 12 (pointed)
Medium rigger brush
Large, flat wash brush (1")
Any other brushes you prefer
Plastic palette

We provide to each painter the use of:
Folding travel stool / seat
Folding table
A hairdryer is supplied in each bedroom

General advisory:
Sun cream (factor 30 minimum recommended)
A hat with a peak or wide brim is recommended
Sun glasses (neutral-coloured). Note: polarising lenses can affect your colour perception
Lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and loose fitting lightweight trousers in addition to 'shorts and T-shirts'
If coming in early June or in September, a sweater or cardigan for use in late evening
Lightweight "breathable" footwear. 'Trainers' or 'Running shoes' are perfectly adequate
Insect repellent
Although we dine out in restaurants, dress code in the area is very informal so 'smart casual' is  fine

A hairdryer is supplied in each bedroom
