    I am really inspired by your videos although as a very beginner I struggle with not being able to create what I see in my head. Your videos encourage me to try. I do have a question about paint. From the videos I've watched, it appears that you prefer pan paints over tubes. I am wanting to invest in artist quality paints and am overwhelmed with the choices. I've seen some of your "testing of inexpensive watercolor" videos but haven't found your opinion of more expensive paints. Would love your comments.
