If you have just started painting with watercolour paints you probably have lots of questions.
And even if you have been painting for a while you may have the same question pop up in your head every time you paint.
So I thought I would put together a short course featuring some of the 'frequently asked questions' along with any videos, pictures or documents to help you out.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNER ?
It can be baffling when you start something new and you are wading your way through different products at different prices. What do you really need and what can wait.
YOU GET THE SAME PROBLEM COME UP TIME AND AGAIN ?
You're happily working you way along and then something really strange happens or you trip over the same old stumbling block.. Perhaps you can't get a colour dark enough or you put it in the wrong place and want to take it off. It can be frustrating.
A lot of of the problems can only be overcome with experience and practice. However from my years of teaching on painting holidays, online and with my events 'ASK Nicola' I have gathered the one that come up the most.
So here I am to answer them and offer some good basic advice.
Enjoy your painting, love Nicola.

So much choice.
As with paints and brushes it is most often a question of budget. I think the paper is probably the most important out of the three. Paper, then paints then brushes. You do have a certain control over HOW you use a brush if it isn't so good, but the other two, not so much.
Experience and practice.
Just play with you paints, using different amounts of water and see what happens.
Getting these in the right place makes a HUGE difference.
You see them all the time but when it comes to getting them into your paintings it's a different matter.
The main thing is to make sure you know where your light is coming from because any shadows will be on the opposite side. If things are in a group remember the items will cast shadow onto each other.
