Paper

The first thing you will need is a sheet of paper. We recommend using Arteza 9×12″ Sketch Book. It is the perfect size for this project and has a good weight and texture for sketching. If you don’t have a sketchbook, any type of paper will do. Just make sure it is a comfortable size for you to draw on and that the surface is smooth enough.

Canvas

The second thing you need is a canvas. We recommend PHOENIX Stretched Watercolor Canvas. It is a good-quality canvas with an even texture. We recommend a size of 8×10″ or 9×12″. Also, make sure to get a canvas that is stretched and primed. This means that the canvas is already stretched on a wooden frame and that it has a white primer coating. This will make your life much easier when it comes to painting.
