For Painting

Here is a run down of the materials I use to create my paintings:

I also favor Strathmore 400 Series.

For more precise realistic watercolor, such as glazing and layering, I don’t need expensive paper, the canson XL series will work perfectly well.


I pay for Photoshop CC, Creative Cloud Package.

I have an Epson Perfection V370.

When one says “I’m self taught”, we’re not being accurate. I have taught myself watching other people’s techniques.
