Paper: there are many good papers available. I prefer 140 Cold Press, either Fabriano, Arches, Waterford, Kilimanjaro, or Lanaquarelle.  Size is your choice. Paper should be cut down to size so you can  handle it with ease.  If you do this, bring a board (i.e. Foamcoar, or Gatorboard) to use as backing when you paint.  Bring some inexpensive watercolor paper for exercises, and a sketchbook for sketching and notes.
