B3353. Botanical Portraits with Colored Pencils by Ann Swan.
Pencils: Large set of Prismacolor Premier colored pencils (48-72 pencils) SHARPENED before class, specifically in following colors: True Blue-#903, Process Red #994, Light Aqua #992, Yellow #915 or 916, Indigo #901, Brown #947 or 946. White Prisma¬color pencil #938; any other pencils you ALREADY own (Verithin, watercolor, Lyra, Derwent, etc.) I use Prismacolor Verithin a lot and I will be doing demos with them.
Pen and Ink: Black non-waterproof ink e.g.: Higgins Eternal (I08); Speedball C-0 (N09) or B-0 (N16) pen nib.
Paper: 1 sheet cover-weight paper for portfolio cover- (18x22inches) (e.g. Canson); 1 half sheet of black Canson Mi-Tientes; 2 other papers you like to work on (8" x 10".)
Other supplies: pen holders, tape, pencil, kneaded eraser (E09), ruler (S270, S271), cut mat (S504), tissues, small palette (S679, S723), mix brush, water jar, scissors, snap off knife or X-acto (S417, S621, S662), etc.; manual pencil sharpener– the kind with replaceable blades (You do not need extra blades.) A smooth work surface measuring approxi¬mately 12"x 14" (31x36cm) – no bumps or texture. I work on a piece of Plexiglas 2 or 3 mm. thick, but masonite, a cut mat, smooth mat board, or even poster board will work–the ideal is a smooth hard surface.
Optional: Stylus (S234), small knitting needle, or a dead ballpoint pen. (I bring plenty to share.); any other wide pens (N27) or split pens you already have, bone folder (S279, S308), electric pencil sharpener.
