Video Watercolor Setup

Updated: Oct 12, 2023

Starting next month, I'll be making watercolor videos for my YouTube channel (here). I'll also include a list of all the supplies I use, including paint colors/brands, paper sizes, and more. I'll even be recording the music for the videos using Garage Band. Art and music all in one place! If that's not enough to keep me busy, I don't know what is?

Here are a couple of pictures of my video setup. I'll post more about the iPhone mount I'll be using in a separate blog post.
