This beautiful set is designed by a talented watercolour artist and includes everything you need, including 12 rich pigment watercolours and a mess free waterbrush. This unique tool includes a brush head and water filled handle that screw together. The brush is kept wet when it presses on the paper or the handle is squeezed.
The detailed How to Paint Guide takes young artists through 18 step-by-step lessons, teaching different watercolour skills by applying them to a delightful collection of favourite creatures great and small, from cats and dogs to snails and whales.
To help you get started an outline sketch of each animal is provided on the pages of the watercolour pad, allowing kids to focus on the painting lessons, including colour blending, mixing colours, wet-on-wet/wet-on-dry technique, layering, textures and so much more!
The kit is compact and portable, so you can even use it to paint ‘en plein air’ (outside). By looking at the world as a watercolour artist you will always be inspired to paint.
