Check Out This Excerpt From Terry Harrison’s Watercolour Mountains, Valleys & Streams:
You will need a range of brushes and a selection of paints. I have used only one type of paper in this book, but you can try different weights and textures.
Watercolour paints come in artists’ or students’ quality. I always use artists’ quality colours because they flow and mix better and give the best results. You should buy the best paints you can afford. There is a lot you can do using only the primary colours and a limited palette, but there are many other colours available if you want to experiment.
Many artists adapt brushes to suit their requirements, I have gone a step further and produced my own range of brushes that I have used throughout this book. They are designed to help you achieve good results easily. Pages 14-15 show how the individual brushes can be used to achieve various techniques I use to paint mountains, water, sky, trees, rock and stonework.
Watercolour paper comes in different weights and in three surfaces: smooth (called hot-pressed or HP), semi-smooth (called Not) and rough. I usually use 300gsm (140lb) rough paper, because the textures is useful for many techniques I use. When I am painting in more detail, I use Not paper of the same weight, because the smoother surface is better for more detailed work.
I never bother to stretch paper before painting. If a painting cockles as it dries, turn it dace down on a smooth, clean surface and wipe the back all over with a damp cloth. Place a drawing board over it and weigh it down, then leave it to dry overnight. The cockling with disappear.
