Step 4 is up at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n_5ysI4u1c&list=UUVAm6W43X6ERRzOxS6UlbLA&index=1&feature=plcp

NOTE: Here’s a list of the exact equipment I used in the demos, including the pigments on my palette.

Sketchbook: Aquabee Super Deluxe Sketchbook, 9×12″ 60 sheets, paintable equally on both sides, hence 120 pages of choice paper that takes watercolor beautifully. (Available here: http://www.beepaper.com/paper/classic-super-deluxe.asp [Note; see my sketches there at this spot: http://www.beepaper.com/index.asp] and here: http://www.cheapjoes.com/search/?keywords=aquabee+super+deluxe&x=48&y=15)

Palette: Cheap Joe’s Original, 17 wells, thick sturdy plastic: http://www.cheapjoes.com/art-supply/400_4635_cheap-joes-original-watercolor-palette.asp

Pigments are all American Journey transparent artist’s watercolors– from lower left up and across to the right the right and down:

Perm. Alizarin Crimson, Joe’s Red, Halloween Orange, Bumblebee Yellow, Joe’s Yellow

Brushes:  DaVinci Maestro round #8 (http://www.danielsmith.com/Item–i-G-063-340)
Interlocking Synthetic brush flat, 1/2″ (http://www.cheapjoes.com/art-supply/AJF-50_10176_american-journey-interlocked-synthetic-brush-flat-size-quot.asp)

Table top easel (http://www.cheapjoes.com/art-supply/CJ15109_8453_cheap-joes-table-top-h-frame-easel.asp).   This one needs to be clamped at the front because tilted to far back, it will fall over.

HB Pencil

Lamy fountain pen with fine tip (http://www.amazon.com/Lamy-Safari-Fountain-Pen-Charcoal/dp/B0002T401Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332111284&sr=8-1)

3M Scotch Blue painter’s tape. Household sponge.  Plastic, collapsible waterbucket, Viva paper towel (feels like cloth, some watercolorists prefer it).

Stay tuned!
