Supplies needed:

  • Hot-pressed watercolor paper tile 4x4 inches printed with a grid (template provided in the lesson)

  • Black inking pen, my favorite is the Sakura Micron 01

  • Black colored pencil. My favorite is the Polychromos

  • Blending stump

  • Graphite pencil. My favorite is Staedtler Mars F pencil.

  • No printer? Use a grid stencil to mark dotted grid. Find a 3.5 inch one here

  • Optional: create and print your own grid using one of these websites. Remember I do not endorse or own any of these, so caution when using:
    1) Gridzzly: super easy to use, my favorite.
    2) Incompetech: offers many different options and different selections. Careful with the ads and misleading green buttons.
    3) Printablepaper: huge selection of shapes, but doesn't offer option to customize the paper size.

This lesson will work over any type of graph paper
