Watercolor addicted :)



basic watercolor paints

Brush size example. The smallest made of kolinsky, it's more tough - ideal fo tiny details. The rest two made of squirrel - more soft, takes a lot of water - ideal for big fill and painting middle and big parts. Big and middle sized brushes better when made of soft natural hair - squirrel or sable. Small brush better when made of more firm natural hair - such as kolinsky or firm synthetics.



What concerns paper, you can try a lot of brands buying it in separate sheets, it is cheaper and will help you to choose your favorite:)

One of my favorite paper brand is French Canson paper. Montval paper is best cellulose i tried. Rough paper ideal for landscapes. Satin paper is perfect for botanical art. Grain fin cold pressed paper i use for everithing! It provides beautiful texture on painting, allows to make washes and corrections. 


Fabriano artistico provides very bright colours. Love it very much too! 


Saunders Waterford is also great paper!
