Do you wet your paper and let it dry before you start?

Very nice Birgit . I have a book and cd of yours given to me as a birthday gift . You are a wonderful water colorist. Thank you for your video.

Really great demo. What weight of paper did you use? How do you keep the paper from warping when your finished, if you don't tape it down? Do you do this at the end? Also, are there reasonably priced pure sable and mixed sable and synthetic brushes on the market? Thanks so much. I'm enjoying your Essential Watercolor book very much.

Artist, please remember, some of those brushes use animal hair. Please find a good alternative that doesn't impact the life and or well-being of animals. Thank you.

Lovely watercolour picture, advice & tips. I am new to watercolour Birgit & was wondering what size & type of brush you use & where can they be bought, also do you wet all the areas before you put down the paint. Thank you
