Beginning Watercolor Art Supplies 1
Recommended supplies for the beginning watercolor student - choose based on your budget. Watercolor paints in tubes: colors should include a warm and cool yellow, warm and cool red and warm and cool blue like the Daniel Smith paint set. The two palette options vary by size: while the travel palette is easier to carry, the Masterson palette will store larger volume of paints and offers bigger mixing areas. Watercolor paper: Arches paper is superior to Canson but also more expensive. Brushes: if you can only choose 1 brush to start with, choose a 3/4 inch flat white synthetic brush.
