First I did the sketch with just a regular pencil,
I tried many watercolor brands. I have many different brands. Some of them I got because I didn't have money for more expensive brands, some of them were because I "had to have" these brands, and finally I saved money for most desirable by me Sennelier watercolor set of 48 , the watercolor I use is my all time favorite brand. It's a honey based great quality french watercolor. Nothing is better in the world IMHO.
da Vinci Watercolor wash mop size 2 , and the other brushes are Escoda Kolinsky Size 2, Escoda Kolinsky Size 4, Escoda Kolinsky Size 6.
I hate to wait while the watercolor is drying, so sometimes I use a heat tool
This painting took too long because I really wanted to take my time and to enjoy this particular process. This is the biggest size for me yet, and I really would like to continue working in this style among my main whimsical style in acrylics.
