Work in progress, I’m going to give watercolors a whirl for the first time ever, any tips?
Start light to dark (or, if need be, dark to light) then KEEP IT THAT WAY until finished. Work in layers, with paint drying in between layers. Stay away from gimmics like salt or alcohol, at least at first. Have fun, good luck. Oh, BTW I found that the polypropylene (plastic) watercolor papers were perfect for me at first because I could use them over and over. Good paper is a major expense.
I once got a small pad of assorted watercolor paper- all different types. Each one accepts the medium in a different way. And then just play around with it until you find your favorite one. Try wet on dry, wet on wet. Then see how it looks coloring over a simple pencil sketch. Watercolors are a blast- experiment until you find your thing.
