Watercolor Painting Tools - Part 1: Paper

Time to live up to my past promise on an extensive overview of tools for watercolor painting. If I had to rank the priority of each, I would break it out as follows:

1. Paper - quality 140lb or 300lb watercolor paper

2. Paints - Artist grades will certainly improve your painting skills and techniques

3. Brushes - This comes in last place because different artists' prefer different types of brushes
