You’ve watched YouTube tutorials and read blogs about how to watercolor but you feel more confused than ever.
You’re tired of trying to piece together how to paint with watercolors on your own, without guidance.
You wish someone would just take you by the hand and guide you through each step. You wish you could ask specific questions and get some real feedback.
What if a month from now you were able to say you have mastered the medium of Watercolor?
Imagine how it would feel to finally paint what you want and actually feel confident in the process.
Imagine that instead of buying cards, gifts, and home decor, you have the ability to create your own.
Imagine being connected to others who are on the same journey with you… all committed to learning the art of watercolor, cheering you on as you create beautiful things to share.
I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you’re starting to paint for the first time. If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, get off track and never master watercolor. Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all.

I’ve spent months researching the best supplies at the best price point for beginners. I will give you a complete list with links for your convenience and suggestions of where to buy to get the best deals.
