I always start off with lots of sketching.
I move my sketch to my nice paper using the graphite paper. (Just follow the instructions on the package, it's super easy). Now you're ready to start painting!
When you start painting with watercolors, it's important to remember to keep your brush wet. The saturation of your color will depend on how much water you add to the paint. There are various techniques you can use with watercolors (that would be a whole other blog post or more), but when first starting out just have fun and do what feels comfortable.
Here's my cowgirl all painted in.
Inked and outlined.
