Are you new to watercolour and ready to start painting?  Let's get your kit together!  Here are some suggestions of supplies that I have actively used in my own watercolour kit and can happily recommend to you. 

Remember - this is just my own personal preference! Every watercolour artist will have their own favourites and recommendations, so if you try something and it's not for you, that's okay - you can find an alternative that you like better.

(Disclaimer: Some of the links on this page are affiliate links, but please know that everything on this page is something that I have used myself and feel good about recommending.)
