Watercolor is a wonderful and versatile medium that scares many beginners! In this article, you will find the simple points that I think are important if you are trying watercolor for the first time.

Watercolors come in three different categories: for children, for students and for artists. The best watercolors for beginners are student quality. All you need is a good palette, and you're done!

Whichever set you choose, the first thing to do when you receive your watercolors is to create a color chart.

Basically, you cut a piece of watercolor paper slightly smaller than your set. Paint swatches of each color on it, label the colors and your painting is done!

Watercolor requires special paper due to its absorbency. The watercolor paper basically lets the paint sit on the paper until it dries instead of letting the paint come off like a cobweb.

If you try to paint on, say, standard #20 printer paper, the watercolor will bleed around the edges because the paper is very absorbent.

Watercolors require very little maintenance. First, start with a palette of watercolors. Then use a small spray bottle, blunt syringe or spoon to moisturize the colors you wish to use.

Then, dip the brush in water to moisten it, rub the brush over a pigment, and place the rich pigment brush on the paper. That's all!

You can control the shade of any pigment by adjusting the amount of water on your brush. If you want a very light shade, dip your brush in water and just brush the tip of the brush with the pigment.

For medium shades, you will still apply the pigment with a damp brush, but you will apply a little more pigment than for a light shade.

For dark tones, blot the water from your brush (it will still be wet, but not saturated), then use the dampened paint straight from the palette.

One thing to note about watercolors is that you don't have to buy a set that has lots of different colors! It's easy to mix your own colors.

Simply moisten a pigment with about 1/16 of a teaspoon of water, then incorporate the water into the pigment, stirring it with a brush.

Apply some of the colors to a slippery surface. Then do the same with another pigment and add it to the first pigment.
