All Artists I presume, use these watercolor tips,they are easy and ensure an easy approach to a watercolor painting.

This blog does not teach you how to use watercolor, instead it gives tips on preparation for a watercolor painting.

As an artist myself I use these tips always, before I embark on a watercolor painting.

To further learn how to use watercolor, I have books that will be resourceful and help you learn more tips and techniques going further.

Below are some the of books I recommend, that have steps on how to achieve a brilliant watercolor painting.

Anyway lets start with these quick tips that Artists use.

Watercolor Tips

-Dampen the paper directly before starting work, the paper is well dampened and stick it paper tape, or pin it down with tag pins.

 -A single wetting is not enough. 

 -It takes a while for dry paper to soak up enough water.

-While the paper is relatively dry before another wetting, you can lay in a few pencil outlines of your intended picture.

-The lead should not be too soft, H is about right.

Always keep 2 jars of water at hand:  one for washing out the brushes and the other, filled with clear water for the pipette or for clean brushes.

Brushes:  No 6 is OK.
Paints:     Keep them in a tin box.  Pans are more economical, but it takes longer to soften.  Tubes are simpler.
Sponge cloths or rags are needed to wipe palettes clean.
