    I have nothing to add in the way of advice, I'm so unartistic that I can't even paint a door

    I just had to say though I thought we were off into a strange realm with these two posts

    Which can be read, to the strange of mind like me, that you are going to pick up NOW the paintings that she is going to do next week, which distorts the space time continuum, and may mean that we don't get New Year at all.

    So when that was immediately followed by this

    OK, continue with your normal programming while I go and lie down for a while, I think I'm suffering from chocolate overload

    Haha thanks for that Golden Horse ;P

    Tinyliny and Lilruffian:
    THANKYOU!!! I cherish your advice so much. I will invest in some watercolour paper. I will also try not using black, that might make it look not as flat!

    At the moment I'm on the good stuff for my knee which didn't quite make it to feeling festive, so that plus the odd sherry and a carb overload means that I am even more off of the wall than usual.

    I'll be alright for a little while now, just battled through the snow to feed the ponies, and have had lovies from everyone, it always brings some sanity into my life

    Caitlin,

    Having the right brushes is equally as important. You need to have a brush with soft hair that holds a lot of water. The brush used for oil painting would not work for watercolor. If you can afford it, get one with some natural hair in it, like a sable + man made material mix. Make sure it has a good point.
    YOu can manage with about three brushes minimum; one small round , one medium round, and one 1 inch or wider wash brush (flat).

    I paint with Chinese brushes, but when I use color, I use my watercolor brushes.
    I LOVE getting new art equipment, as much as getting new tack. I love the feel of the brush, the joy of mixing up a new color, the crisp heaviness of the new paper. That is why I don't think I would be a good digital artist because I want to get my hands INTO the work.
    Even clean up is enjoyable.

    I am planning onb taking a class in watercolor this winter, so I hope to learn more about how to apply the color and mix and such. I have found it much harder than I expected.

    When you see work like this, on this link, you realized that it is an amazing medium and you (me) are rank beginners compared to these guys!
