What to Bring...

What to Bring for Jamaica in July...

General Gear:-

- swimwear, towel
- yoga gear or loose comfortable clothing, 
- yoga mat (optional)
- sunscreen, hat, insect repellent
- a packed lunch or something to share for the pot luck table

Painting Supplies:-

- brushes - a larger wash brush, a round about size 8 to 12, a smaller round for details size 8 or smaller, (flat brush 1'2" optional)
- palette, 
- notepad/sketchbook, pencil (2B or more), eraser
- painting pad, block or at least three sheets of watercolour paper (9" x 12" or larger) - (if you are having trouble finding this, they have some pads at Bryan's bookstore, across the plaza from Fontana at Fairview)  I will also have some loose sheets available to buy.)
- watercolour paints, (I prefer the Artists' tube paints by Winsor & Newton,) recommended colors:
      Winsor (phthalo) blue, green shade, French Ultramarine, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow Hue,
      in other words a warm and cool version of each primary colour as a basic palette, plus optional extras could be: 
      Burnt Sienna, Permanent Sap Green, Dioxazine Purple,Permanent Rose, Quinacridone Gold, Indigo, Burnt Umber.  

      Don't worry if you don't have all these - just bring what you have.

You can paint from live scenes in front of you or if you prefer you can work from photos - bring your own if you have some you like, or I can provide a choice of reference material.
