MY WATERCOLOUR KIT





When I studied art at GCSE I had to try out different mediums and whilst there were few that I liked to use the one I loved the most was watercolour. With a little practise and learning the right techniques I have managed to be at a place that I am happy with how my watercolour paintings turn out. I'm still not amazing or an artist but I really do enjoy painting especially with watercolour.

Over the past few months I have been trying to build up a watercolour kit to ensure that my paintings turn out the best they can be. The kit that I use everytime when I paint is a small one but something that I couldn't live without when completing my drawings. A ruler , 2b pencil and rubber is essential when you are drawing or creating the outline for your painting. 

The most important thing when painting is of course the paint. I have found with watercolour that any type will do whether it's cheap or expensive. I purchased a more expensive set as I found that they had a better colour selection which is hard to find with watercolours. My next two most recent pieces of equipment are a Moleskine watercolour note book and Unipin black pen set. These are my two favourite things in my kit. I always thought that if I needed to outline my paintings I could just use a pen even though this is ok, unipens are amazing and the Moleskine notebook is perfect to pop into your handbag or travel. My watercolour kit is ever growing and I don't think that it will stop right here!


Do you have a watercolour kit ?

  3. LOVE this post! I really want to get into watercolour painting as I love how it looks! I'm currently halfway through my GCSE art course and so far I seem to have experimented with everything but watercolour! I'm looking for a nice set of watercolour paints - I was wondering where you got yours from? So glad you've done this post as it's really given me the push I need to start using water colours!
