If you’re just planning to start out on your watercolor painting journey, there are a few tips we can provide so you don’t get lost on your way. We’ll try to clear a path for you so you don’t have to think about anything but finding inspiration for your art.
Of course, a first step for watercolor painting would be drawing a sketch of your scene or subject. For this you could use all sorts of charcoal and pencils (don’t forget about erasers) and even ink pens and liner pens.
Actually, liners are becoming very popular as they can come in all sorts of colors and you can use them for very fine details or highlights on your painting and not only for sketches. Take a look at these dual tip fine brush markers. Liners at one end, fine brush markers at the other and a wide selection of colors to choose from when sketching or putting details on your work.
And this takes us to your second essential: brushes. Artist brushes can become a confusing plethora of choices. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Even more, you don’t need to spend huge amounts of money purchasing brushes. You can find good quality brushes which deliver very good results and can be used for all sorts of techniques in sets just like the Artist Paint Brushes Clarity. These positively reviewed brushes are perfect for artists, from beginners to professionals, for your kids, friends or any art lovers in your life.
What about the colors themselves? Watercolors come in all sorts of containers, tubes and sets and in time you will find out which of these works best for you. We can recommend giving our Watercolor Paint Set a go. This set is perfect for beginners and not only. It has lots of shades already mixed for you so you can put your vision on paper more quickly. Also, the set comes with a refillable water brush and a premium round bristles DACO paint brush.
So, have a piece of watercolor paper at hand, get your supplies ready, pre-mix your colors if needed and start painting. Remember to start from your background and work your way to the foreground, paint from light to dark and don’t be afraid to experiment and explore your creative side. Art is a personal expression of the way we see the world around us and shouldn’t be bounded by anything.
