Recommended Art Supplies

*Recommended for Online Nature Journaling Classes

Sketchbooks & Watercolor Paper

*Stillman & Bern Beta series mixed media sketchbooks: I like the square size for posting online and the 8x10 size for traveling
Canson Mixed Media Sketchbooks: I like these for children or for a cheaper sketchbook option. The paper is much thinner than Stillman & Bern so be aware of that
Canson Watercolor Pad: I use this for many projects and finished artwork


Brushes
*Pentel Aquash Japan Waterbrush (Medium): this is what I use for nature journaling and travel sketching. Of all the water brushes I have tried, this performs the best.
Loew-Cornell Ultra Round Watercolor brushes sizes 4, 6, 8, 10: these are inexpensive watercolor brushes (you may find them somewhere other than Amazon at a better price)
Rosemary Watercolor Brushes: these are the best of the best! I have a size 8 travel brush that I love!


Paints
*Windsor & Newton Travel Watercolor Palette: this is an excellent set for nature journaling
Meeden Watercolor Palette: this is the palette I use for traveling and I fill it with my own choice of paints. My most-used colors come from Cheap Joe's American Journey watercolor paint line and are Joe's Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Quinacridone Red Rose Deep, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue Hue, and Sap Green.


Pencils & Pens
*Sakura Mechanical Pencil: for ease of use on the go
*Pilot G-2 black ink pen (I use fine point 07)
*Micron permanent pen (assorted sizes are great; something like 05 is a good choice for one)
*Uni-ball Signo UM-153 white gel pen


Miscellaneous
*Clothespins for keeping sketchbooks open and pages separated
*Paper towels: Viva are my favorite!
Pencil sharpener: the Carl Angel-5 is beyond anything you've ever experienced!
