What do you need for the course?
In the course I’ve used the following colours for the picture. ( FYI: Of course, you don’t have to use the same when drawing. )

deep violet,
deft blue,

What about the paper?
I recommend paper, also called ingres paper, which is a textured paper. Use a dark blue toned paper, not a white one!
/ Watercolor paper is also a suitable surface for pastels because it’s strong and can be purchased in a range of textures. /
