2) Get to know your paints
Every paint brand, in fact every paint bottle, has paints that act differently. It all depends on what techniques you use and if (and how) you dilute your paints. Take your time getting to know your paints, find your favourites and experiment. I would never recommend buying a whole paint set at once. When someone asks me what my favourite paint brand is, I cannot give you an answer, all have their good and bad points, as well as good and bad paints. For example, I like GW paints for vibrant colours, Reaper paints for fleshtones, Scale75 for NMM or when I need very matte paints,
and Vallejo for earthy tones.
For beginners and advanced painters I highlight recommend the Beginners class from Roman Lappat, it is great and helps you step out of your comfort zone! Alfonso Giraldes’ workshop is something else completely and is a must for advanced and master painters. This workshop will help you view miniatures and colour in a whole different way.
is great! You do what you like most, it always works the best! Another great thing about shows is that you get the opportunity to talk to other painters, do this. Everyone has their own great views and you can learn from each other.

sometimes too, as sometimes you just see a perfect colour), but instead ask why certain colours are used. This is much more insightful.
Have fun painting!!!
