We’ll take a look at: why upgrading your paper is the #1 Way to Instantly Improve Your Watercolor Results, What type of paper you should be using, the difference between Hot, Cold and Rough Press paper, and what to look for in a good watercolor paper!
From tubes, to pans and liquids, you have a lot of choices. I thought it’d be helpful to distinguish which watercolor paint is best for you and go over a few brands that you might want to check out!
we’ll talk about the two main types of brushes to choose from, some popular shapes and when to use them, plus a SUPER important note about sizing, and finally, go over a few brands that you might want to check out.
With the guide, you'll:

a self-taught artist turned creative entrepreneur with a passion for helping others turn their favorite hobby into a sustainable and profitable online business
As a self-taught artist, I can relate to the struggles of wondering if you're on the right track, or hitting a plateau and being unsure about where to head next. I also totally get that "entrepreneurial itch" to strike out on your own, and the subsequent paralysis when you realize you have no idea where to start!
It's my mission to walk alongside you, share what I've learned and provide an easier path for you to follow. If you're new around here, be sure to check out the latest blog post's jam packed with educational content on watercolor and running an artistic business, and while you're at it, make sure you never miss a post by signing up for news in your inbox!
