WATERCOLOR / Watercolor Supplies

Listing Out All My Art Supplies

Modern Watercolor has its benefits in that you have the freedom to choose from a variety of art supplies and not just from one category/type. In all honesty – I've currently moved my home art studio twice in my house – mainly due to storage (and yes I thoroughly admit I have a problem with hoarding art supplies ;) lol ) Many of you have asked that I try to condense this list to my favs – which I'll be attempting to do so here. ?

So without further ado – below is a list of my current favorite art supplies that I own and use for illustrating. These do not just include watercolor supplies but also drawing supplies, mixed media art supplies, and really anything else I can think of that I might reach for during a painting. ? I'll make sure to add links in the future – but here is the list as promised.
