For little paintings and just to get ideas down I usually use a moleskine watercolour journal, which I love and will continue to keep re purchasing. For larger finished pieces I usually use Arches 300gsm smooth paper.
They are a little pricey but it’s just what suits me and what I’m comfortable with.
I reccomend playing around with different textures and weights till you find what suits you, but always make sure the paper/notepad is specific to a watercolour medium :)
Have a lovely day and I hope this helped! xx
Hi I haven’t invested too much in brushes yet as I end up mistreating them hehe, but I’ve recently bought a couple of winsor & newton ones that are real nice to use, trying my best to not abuse them :)
I sure do lovely! shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat more about it :)
