NEW TO WATERCOLOUR?
Here's what I recommend:
ESSENTIAL SUPPLIES - SUBSTITUTES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED
Paint - TUBE paints are more versatile
Artist Quality (14ml or 5ml) - ESSENTIAL
Recommended Brands: Winsor & Newton or Schmincke
You’ll be able to mix every colour and tone imaginable using these pigments.
The best watercolour brushes are very soft natural bristle but these student synthetic brushes are good substitutes. You can paint all your work with just 4 brushes and they will last many years if properly cared for:
Watercolour Paper - essential
Fabriano Artistico, 300gsm, CP, 100% cotton rag, full sheet 76x56cm – 1 sheet
Bockingford is acceptable.
SUBSTITUTES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED
Due to supply difficulties wherever you are in the world, please be happy with the colours and quality of paint, brushes and paper you have right now.
You might get a different result from me - that's great - your work is already starting to have your unique style and you will be developing your own sense of colour!!
