One of the best parts about watercolor is how accessible the supplies are. You can find paints and brushes at your local craft store, or order online. You don’t have to spend a bunch on fancy supplies (although there are certainly beautiful options if you choose to).

There are endless options for paint sets – from very inexpensive classroom sets to professional-quality tubes of paint. Choose the best set that fits your budget. These are three great options:
Great set for vibrancy and transparency. Comes with a small round brush.
Winsor & Newton $18
You will want a few sizes of round brushes. I paint mainly with a size 6, then do all details with size 1 or a fine liner.
