What You’ll Need:
Watercolour paper (not normal paper)
A water cup
A palette or mixing tray (usually this is the lid of your paints)
Some additional supplies that may be useful include masking tape, a pencil, and an eraser.
1.How do I choose the right brush for my painting?
The right brush depends on the type of painting you are creating. For larger washes, use a larger square brush, and for fine details, use a smaller brush. Round brushes are a good all-purpose choice for watercolour painting. See pictures for examples.
Can I use watercolours on any type of paper?
It's best to use watercolour paper, which is specially designed to absorb and hold watercolour paint. Regular paper may not hold up well to the wetness, cause abrasive rubbing and warp the paper.
Will you provide materials?
Materials won’t be provided for this class. Please provide your own materials. Just remember, the cheaper the pallette, the lesser quality iy maybe. Just like buying wine at a resutrant, always go for at least the second cheapest one.
What colours will I need before the lesson?
We can work with any colour palettes, there's always a way! This class aims to be accessible as much as possible so if you really are worried, send me a picture before of what you've got.
What if I need to cancel?
It's ok, these things happen. If you can give me 72 hours notice, I'll issue a full refund :)
