Last year, I attended a fabulous conference geared towards DIY lovers. Near the end of the weekend, I walked into my last break out session exhausted. I wasn’t sure how much I would glean from a session on watercolors in my tired state, but I settled in my seat and listened to the speaker make watercolor painting seem like a breeze. The class wound up being my favorite of the entire weekend. The painting was relaxing and opened up a creative portion of my brain that I didn’t think existed! I enjoyed the “me moment” and looked forward to continuing it at home. I made this little wreath to adorn a shelf in my bedroom. Not too bad for my first piece, do you think?
I came home with intentions of tackling watercolor painting- or any painting for that matter- and becoming a pro.
And then life happened.
Since that conference, I have picked up the brush in the number of times that I can count on one hand. I’m disappointed in myself that I haven’t made time for learning. But with any new hobby or passion comes not only needed time, but also needed supplies. Costs for this can add up quickly and can be a deterrent for anyone starting something new. During the conference, the instructor mentioned 3 basic watercolor supplies for beginners that I would need to invest in for watercolor work. Of course, these are only the basics. Serious watercolor work would require more brushes and paper options.
- Watercolor Pan Set– The colors on this set is brilliant, and it is not expensive.
- Pointed Round #8 Brush
- Watercolor Paper
