I get lots of questions from beginners, and most of them are along the lines of "what am I doing wrong?" I thought I'd make a series of videos that might help. I thought of 15 problems beginners encounter when they paint with watercolor, and here are the first five! These are the most basic problems and are the easiest to correct. Stay tuned for two more videos in this series.
If you are a beginner and don't know what supplies to buy, you might find this video helpful.
