An absolute beginner in watercolour bought artist-grade Holbein watercolour

So, I did it. I went and bought my first set of watercolours as an adult. My last set was most probably bought by my mum when I was a kid. It has been that long.

I went for Holbein. Not that I’m an expert in watercolour. Hardly. I’m a chicken-poop scared absolute beginner in the world of watercolour. For someone who’s scared of making mistakes, who has an unhealthy performance-production need to complete things nicely, watercolour seems like the makings of a nightmare. If I said I’m sometimes anxious about making mistakes on my non-digital fine liner drawings (no delete button), getting into watercolour is levelling up!

I bought Holbein watercolour because I read and researched it’s one of the better artist-grade brands that artists use. That even a beginner should go for artist-grade and not student grade, because the pigments are just different. Therefore, learn from the beginning using artist-grade watercolour.

Shall update in due time when I pluck up the courage to mess up the paint. The kit is nicely kept in my drawer. Then again, it’s only one day after the purchase. Let’s see.
