How to get started painting with watercolors

Are you a beginner, looking to get started painting with watercolors? Here are the materials that I recommend:

Paints: A full color kit of watercolor tubes will last you many, many paintings. The colors in this pack are bright, easy to mix, and comprehensive:

Paper: I love spiral bound watercolor books like these. I sometimes use them for other mediums as well, and even serious brainstorming:

Artist’s Tape: For taping down your watercolor paper and creating a clean frame around your painting:

Wax Resist: For masking out white areas while saturating with color:

Wax Resist eraser: For removing the wax resist easily and cleanly:

A paint tray: You’ll want this kind in order to add water to your paints in the little wells:

Brushes: You can use the same two small brushes that are used for my acrylic painting classes for watercolors:

For watercolor tutorials for beginners, check out my channel on Youtube, Paint Along With Skye. I made a playlist for my watercolor tutorials. I will not be continuing “watercolor Wednesday’s” for 2020, but it will return in a later year on the channel, and the playlist will be a great start. My popular acrylic painting for beginners classes are posted on Youtube every Saturday morning at 11 pst.
