Please read:  Supply List Water Colors: any will do but Michael's has these two sets -- Koi Water Colors™ Pocket Field Sketch Box, 12 Colors or Royal & Langnickel® Essentials™ Watercolor Art Set. These sets are inexpensive; there are better watercolor paints but this should work just fine. If you want to buy separate tubes or squares: • naphthol red • phthalo blue • azo yellow • phthalo green • burnt umber and • Payne’s grey. Brushes: Get a large and medium round brush (that comes to a sharp point for painting detail), size 4 and 10. Pencil: -- 2H would be great but use whatever you have. Watercolor Sketchbook: - get spiral bound 9 x 12". Bring what you have -- don't buy anything special if you already have watercolor equipment.
