People often ask me for some basic tips on watercolor, so I thought I write a little guide about my experience!^^
Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion only. You don't have to agree with all points but you should know I wrote all of them to the best of my belief!
Finding the right tools
I think this is the hardest step. Bad quality supplies can mess up your results and you will lose your fun. That's the reason why I disliked painting with watercolor at school: We only used cheap tools like thin paper which crinkles or brushes which lose hair. Honestly, it's not fun at all picking up all lost hair on your painting or having a finished picture full of wrinkles!
Only when I was lucky to get better quality watercolors, brushes and papers, I fell in love with this traditioal medium!
You don't have to buy the most expensive tools, just make sure buying a higher quality than ordinary "school quality"!
I recommend buying art supplies in a shop for artists.
