Please use whatever paints you have on hand.
M Graham, Sennelier, Holbein, Schminke, Winsor and Newton, Daniel Smith. ALL are great.
I use the following paint colors frequently. Plus, I love to add fun, bright colors.
Quinacridone RoseYellows & Orange
Indian Yellow Quinacridone Gold
Cobalt Blue Phthalo Blue

Any brush that will hold a point, some paint and some water. Inexpensive will work. I use Rosemary and Co and DaVinci brushes a lot. Inexpensive brushes are Royal, Silver Black Velvet, and Cheap Joes Golden Fleece. Also, Chinese calligraphy brushes are great.
Round Sizes - I use these the most. It's nice to have 3 sizes
10 or 12
DaVinci Nova Series 122 - Any small stiff, flat synthetic brush for lifting out paint (synthetic)
Good for washes. Don’t buy them if you don’t already have them.
Any spray bottle. It's more fun if the spray pattern is irregular
I use a small finer mist spray bottle for wetting the paints on my palette
Your choice. I’ve used all kinds. I prefer white porcelain because it doesn't stain. I currently use small bread dipping saucers - with a variet of primary colors on each one.

Paper towels or facial tissue
Small towel or rag
Water containers – 2
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
Masking Fluid – Your choice. Winsor and Newton, Pebeo, Incredible White Mask
