Water colours are watered down paints perfect for painting landscapes and ‘natural’ pictures. Watercolours can be used in a pocket box form or small tubes of watercolours.

For a nice finish you could soak your watercolour paper with water and then drag your fingers along it to get rid of excess. Then carefully put your paper onto a wooden board and tape down. Wait for the paper to dry, which could be a few days. When the paper is dry carefully plan out your picture and then paint with your watercolour paper still taped to the board. When your picture is finished cut the paper off with a scalpel knife.

A.A.Milne and Beatrix Potter were both famous for their beautiful water colours.
