Description

If you struggle to add details or depth, I have created this class to help you become a master of layering.

This class is a must-watch for beginners and perfect to get in the 'watercolour mindset' if you are an acrylic or oil painter.

Supplies

Watercolour brushes - round brushes in sizes that feel comfortable. Size 6 or 10 are good. I always recommend you have a 0 or 00 for fine details. It makes all the difference.

Watercolour paper - I like Canson and Fabriano. Anything that is 250-300gsm

Watercolours

A container of water, for rinsing brushes

Pencil and eraser

Flannel, or art rags

A white plate or palette for mixing colours
