Winsor and Newton paint set along with brush set and paper is what I recommend for beginners to intermediate as a great start! As you grow in watercolor painting, you will continue using the colors in your initial palette and then discover even more colors to add to your personal palette!

*  Watercolor Paint Brush Sets: Synthetic-White or nicer (Round 2, 8, 12, Stroke 3/4, Flat Wash 1/2).

I suggested a good base set for beginners. As you grow you might add more brushes

* Paper - the best quality you have or are able to purchase, it just needs to be watercolor paper

  •  9" x 12"  300 grams rough texture 140 lb. This is a good weight paper that won't warp from moisture
