supports for watercolors
Ampersand's Claybord or Aquabord is my choice for watercolor paintings.
An alternative is watercolor canvas. When the painting is dry, it needs to be sprayed with a fixative.
When I started painting with watercolor, I went all out and purchased expensive sable watercolor brushes.
Today there are so many good quality synthetic brushes that work just fine.
If you are starting out, start with three brushes. Choose any brand you
Work with them awhile to see how you like them. Then decide if
you want or need any more.
You could start with a 1" flat to use for painting and doing washes. Get a #7 or #8 round with a very good point to use for general painting. Also get an additional small round #3 or #4 to use for details.
Find a wide variety of brushes for all budgets at BLICK!
get your art painting supplies on hand
These are the art painting supplies I have used over the years.
I have always lived in small town areas that generally don't have good art supply stores.
I have shopped out of catalogues and had my supplies shipped for many years.
Now-a-days we shop on line. How handy is that!
