What do you need to start with?
We recommend using 100% cotton paper with the density of 300 gr/m2
- a couple sheets of plain paper or a sketching pad
- watercolour paper: 4 sheets ,size А3 or А4
These are some brand examples: Saunders Waterford, Arches, Canson Watercolor, Clairefontaine, Moulin du Roy etc. You could buy seperate sheets of paper or a sketch notebook,it doesn't really matter (you could even buy one qiant sheet and cut it into smaller ones). The texture of your paper doesn't really matter. BRUSHES
Natural brush (kolonok), synthetics mix – your choice
- one thin brush №1/0
- one fan brush №1
- a round brush № 4-6 (your main one)
Professional set of watercolour paints (12-24 colours), any brand, examples: Schmincke, Van Gogh, Winsor&Newton, Lukas e.t.c. Watercolors could be in cells or tubes most importantly it should not be the "school art-class watercolor" from an office supply store.
- a clipboard (hardboard, plywood e.t.c.)
- paint palette
- paper tape
- pencil (B-2B)
- cup for water
- paper napkins.
