Botanical Painting Supply List

  • Leaves.  Freshly cut plants with printable veins, cut within a few days of class and flattened in a heavy book, not a phone book or newsprint.  Bring book(s); do not remove plants from book(s) until the minute you use each piece in your painting.  Ferns and grasses, trees and bushes with prominent veining on their back side work best.  Also, interesting leaf shapes (outside edge shape) are also interesting and need not have veins.
  •  Masking or painter’s tape
  • Watercolor pencils (optional)
  • Rocks, flat glass marbles (floral arranging marbles), or weights for plants.  May be bought at most Dollar-type stores
  • A baggie of fresh grass from your yard
  • Watercolors
  • A pad of watercolor paper.  We will do multiple paintings.  Bring whatever size/weight of paper you prefer. I like d’Arches rough pads, 9 x 12”
  • Favorite watercolor brushes.  Especially a mop or round that holds a lot of paint/water
  • Spray bottle or mist bottle of water
  • Bottle of diluted dish detergent or shampoo.  Approx. 2 tbsp soap in 8-12 oz water.
  • White gouache (optional)
  • White acrylic paint or paint marker(s) (optional)
  • Paint cloths, rags or paper towels (I use terrycloth)
