· 1 Watercolour or mixed media book (any size – this is your preference): paper weight 130 – 140lb is suitable. Examples:
Pentalic Multimedia Sketchbook, Moleskin watercolour, or use loose pieces of watercolour paper
· Ruler (I find a small clear ruler is great for your travel kit, a triangle ruler works well too!)

· Watercolour brush: one round brush size 8 or larger. It is optional to have an assortment of brushes and sizes. Optional: water brushes
