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: https://amzn.to/39MQcCe
Paper: I love spiral bound watercolor books like these. I sometimes use them for other mediums as well, and even serious brainstorming: https://amzn.to/2Q6RsZ2
Artist’s Tape: For taping down your watercolor paper and creating a clean frame around your painting: https://amzn.to/38JXN3g
Wax Resist: For masking out white areas while saturating with color: https://amzn.to/2W9u6pq
Wax Resist eraser: For removing the wax resist easily and cleanly: https://amzn.to/2TJr1e8
A paint tray: You’ll want this kind in order to add water to your paints in the little wells: https://amzn.to/38K5Ug3
Brushes: You can use the same two small brushes that are used for my acrylic painting classes for watercolors:
- A medium sized, round brush: Simply Simmons round brush
- A tiny round brush too, like this: Simply Simmons small round brush
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.
