Watercolor Paint

It's a good idea to purchase only professional quality watercolor. Student grade paint, such as Cotman Watercolours and Grumbacher Academy may cost less but also contain less pigment. Do not buy gouache or any color with hue in its name. Some of the better watercolor brands are:

Winsor & Newton Selected List Artists' Watercolours (I prefer this brand) Holbein Artists' Watercolour
