More Adventures in Watercolor

Hello Citizens of The Blogosphere,

I come to you today to share my most recent watercolor adventures.

Annotated Audrey’s Watercolor Adventures

First things first, let’s review my new watercolor setup…

The art supplies listed below were purchased from Daiso at $1.50 each, making my entire setup (excluding my sketchbook) under $5.00. (Yay!)

  • Watercolor Pallet  ($1.50) This pallet is surprisingly strong and has a lot of space for a variety of colors. It also has a great deal of space for mixing. Comparable palettes are sold at Blick and Amazon for at least four times the cost.
  • Watercolor Paints ($1.50)  Although the colors are somewhat opaque, they are vibrant and can create really amazing color washes. Sure, these aren’t the highest quality paints you can get, but for the price they are an absolute steal.
  • Paintbrushes: ($1.50) These are great paintbrushes! The bristles hold up to extended use and the handles are very sturdy.

And now for the art…

Here are some art pieces I made using a combination of these paints, fine liner pens, sharpie markers and paint pens.

As always, thanks so much for taking the time to read this post.

XO, Audrey

  1. Hello there 🙂 first of all i love all your art work there very beautiful and simple which i like 🙂 i bought a set of brushes from Daiso but they weren’t really stiff they were okay (I bought the red one instead of the blue one :/ ) so i was wondering was your brush stiff while using them?

    1. Hello! I have definitely used this brand before. With watercolor… the thicker, the better. However, in my experience… I do recommend getting watercolor paper or mixed media paper. For this medium… it definitely makes a difference. If you want to save some money and are just practicing, cardstock is okay… just realize its limitations. That means: don’t use too many layers and if you do layer at all really let the paint dry completely in between coats. Hope that helped! -Audrey
