The deep work that you do in your sketchbook will pave the way to creating larger abstract pieces.

Class Materials

I encourage you to use what supplies you have and approach this class from a playful place. While I love Daniel Smith watercolour paints, I understand that they are a splurge. You can substitute for other paint brands but I do suggest using good quality watercolour paper, it makes a big difference!
