Holbein Artists' Gouache has a richness within its color and one of the best gouaches I use to paint with and one of best gouaches to use!  Here are a few things that makes it great to paint with.
  • Holbein Designers’ Gouache Japan’s foremost designers’ color medium.
  • Holbein adds no opaquing agents to their gouache colors
  • finest pigments selected for high density saturation and lightfastness

Staedtler Liner Pens are one of the best on the artist pens on the market.  I prefer these over Micron pens which are not bad either.  Smear Free ink and sketches out pretty smooth.  
  • Pigment liner bonus sketch set of 6 line widths (0.05mm, 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm)
  • 4+2 free pack in stand up easel case
  • Lightfast waterproof smear free ink
  • Long write out length
  • Polypropylene barrel for long life and long metal tip

Strathmore Watercolor Paper Packs- Hot Press

I prefer hotpress vs. the coldpress which is also available.  Makes for better prints and  a lot smoother than coldpress
  • Heavy-weight paper with a hot press finish
  • Ideal for mastering watercolor techniques
  • Package contains six sheets
  • Measures 11x14 inches (packs of 8 x 10 and 5 x 7 are also available)
