Supply Snippets for Watercolor


Quite a few places have delayed shipping for non-essential items at the moment so I've put together a list of Watercolor Supplies on Amazon and beyond that you can purchase on your own or for my Intro to Watercolor Class that deliver *fairly quick*.


There is a 'Basic' section for supplies that can be used at any level but are mostly geared for low cost, student-level art. I'm also including an "Invest" section for art supplies that are a bit more costly but provide better quality materials EVEN FOR BEGINNERS.


I've attached sites for Amazon and Blick for most but suggest looking at the following sites, too, if shipping looks like a long wait:

Blick, Jerry's Artarama, Plaza Art Supplies, Artist and Craftsman, and Michael's
