I prefer a traditional color palette, as used by early Impressionist painters. I use the Sennelier Watercolors line and Winsor Newton Gouche. All these paints are lightfast and have a high honey content, giving a smooth consistency and extraordinary luminosity.
My work as an architect taught me that high quality materials lead to a high quality final product.
MY PAPERS - I use a professional watercolor paper made from 100% cotton fibers that are dispersed and interwoven for exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Cold pressed on a cylinder mould, every sheet looks and feels handmade. It is acid-free, with a bright, natural whiteness. No chlorine or optical brighteners are used in its manufacture. These archival quality materials will hold their colors.
MY BRUSHES -
I started with many brushes, but now find I use only 4 most of the time. My brushes are synthetic, but soft and hold the pigment like real sable. The wide Japanese hake brush is one of my favorites.
