• For drawing:
You will need paper that can stand some erasing, pencils HB, kneaded eraser, knife to sharpen the pencil and piece of sandpaper or sharpening block.
• For painting:
any surface without pronounced texture. I loved painting flowers on Centurion canvas boards or Ampersand boards, variety of brushes that can make brought marks as well as smaller once that will be good for precision marks. I like using natural hair brushes for the washes and blocking in and synthetic brushes for more precise work.
Yellow ocher pale if you have or just regular ocher, raw umber and burned sienna. And colors that you have already. You would want to have white, yellow(warm and cool), red (warm and cool), blue (warm and cool), green (warm and cool) and black.
