Materials and tools – honestly I don’t believe you need fancy supplies to have fun making art! 

  • paper : there are many kinds of watercolor paper, but if you just want to play with no pressure, even this inexpensive paper will work, and it’s acid free!
  • brushes: 2 are enough for this painting, I like using those with a nice pointed tip for watercolors, they are great for washes, and for finer details
  • watercolor paint : they often come with a lid that can be used to mix colors. A white plastic plate is also great for mixing colors
  • a dish to hold water for wetting and rinsing brushes
