You will need a receptacle to hold water to wet your brushes and your paint. I like to use one jar for clean water, and one jar for dirty water. There are many methods out there. None are wrong, so try things out and see what works for you. Some use just one container. Some use two, but differentiate them as warm and cool colors. I sometimes pull a third jar out when I’m working with ink and watercolor. Inky water can get very dirty and murky really fast.
