Watercolor is so beautiful from spring pastel flowers o bolder desert landscapes. I have been doing my research lately and studying up about watercolor. after reading and listening to 3 separate artist I came up with this advice. As I said before I am an acrylic artist.

There are several things you need to start watercolor. The first thing is the paint. You need the following colors 1. burnt umber 2. cobalt blue 3. lemon yellow. 4.light red 5. alerisem[ can’t spell it and neither can spell check] crimson. 6. Paynes gray 7. aquamarine blue. 8. raw sienna. and 9.white wash, Of course, I have three different suppliers of all things painting I will display banners for each.[link]

then you need practice paper to use until you feel like you are starting to get the feel of it. I did a little it was fun. I started with a comma stroke. You pick up a little paint and softly push it to the paper, push it down a little as you go. then bring it up. That is a good one to practice.
