What do I need to start painting with watercolors?
You should always use the best products you can afford to paint in watercolors so you are not frustrated with inferior products. Purchase Artist quality watercolor, 100% cotton rag paper (140# Arches is a good choice.) You will also need water containers, pencil, white eraser, paper towels or cloths, palette to keep your paints on and good quality brushes (I prefer golden taklon – not too expensive but they paint well.)
Should I practice on cheap paper that is not cotton since I am not experienced?
No, the purpose of practicing is so you can learn about the materials you want to use as you get better. You will not learn about them if you use different materials.
Is Watercolor the most difficult paint to paint with?
Some say it is. I believe that once you have mastered watercolor, it is not more difficult than any other medium.
Can you correct mistakes in watercolor?
Yes, that is why we use good paper and paints.
Should I use transparent watercolors or opaque watercolors?
I like transparent colors and primarily paint with them. Opaque watercolors have their place for certain applications.
