Learning the basics to watercolour is in my eyes the best way forward. I’ve read about many beginners who give up after the first attempt because they expected to produce a work of art straight away. Don’t expect this with every hobby you need to learn and playing with my basic tutorials will help you get the feel of the paint, paper and brushes. Once you have these basics under your belt and your confidence is growing then try something a little more challenging. One option after you have gained a little bit of knowledge would be to have a go at one of my PDF tutorials, I know you have to buy them but they are only £3 so not exactly a fortune for a nice project and the extra help you may need. Above all have fun with the painting, splash it on and see what happens!
