Ampersand Gessobord (or Richeson's panels) are my personal favorites. You will receive two Ampersand sample panels to work on when you take a three day workshop.
8x10, 9x12 and 11x14 panels are great for outdoors, depending on your easel, how fast you paint and your level.

_ Foam core Board (one or two depending on what size you work in.)
_ Clips to hold pastel paper
Paper towels, cheap plastic tablecloth for a drop cloth and trash bags.
How to make a Drawing Board for pastels- Cut 2 foam boards just slightly larger than paper size you choose and sandwich pastel paper between the two foam boards and clip them together.
You want a piece of foam core as the bottom layer and a top piece to sandwich in, cover and protect your pastel paper (and completed works). Clips works best to hold it shut. Use two pieces slightly larger than the paper size you will work on are then taped on one side and clipped on three sides.
Put several sheets of paper between the foam core before taping the foam core to hold the paper. Use this as your drawing board. Simply open the top take out several sheets of your paper to work on (the extra adds some cushion) and then close your folder back up. Clip the paper (with the extra sheets under it and clip on three sides so it doesn’t move).
Cut paper to a standard size 8 “ x 10” , 9” x 12”, 11” x 14” , 16” x 20” . What ever size you choose, you will want the foam core to be slightly larger (the exact size on the top and bottom to protect your paper).
Glassine paper or tracing paper between each sheet will protect your pastels from smudging.
Additional for all media:
White charcoal pencil, regular 2b or 6B pencil, eraser,
Artist's ViewCatcher View Finder (gray plastic crop/view finder tool) available at most art stores.
Paper towels, cheap plastic table cloth for a drop cloth and trash bags
Not allowed for travel: Gamsol Artists’ Grade Odorless Mineral Spirits are NOT allowed if TRAVELING BY PLANE or cruiseship. DO NOT PACK AND BRING on a flight. IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING OMS ON FLIGHTS. Gamblin Gamsol and other mediums will be gifted to you as part of the 3-5 day workshops in the U.S. Do not use contractor-grade OMS that is available at hardware stores. It is not good for you, people around you, or your paints!
Be comfortable outdoors (for Plein Air workshop only):
Dress in layers, or bring a change of clothes, and adjust as the weather changes
Wear neutral-colored top or jacket to avoid reflections on your canvas
Hat or a visor. I like a wide brimmed hat to keep much sun off.
Bring plenty of bottled water
Your supplies should fit in a lightweight bag or backpack and be light enough for you to carry (or have on wheels) when working outdoors.
Any questions, ask me!
