This kit contains:
- benzimidazolone yellow (winsor yellow)
- pyrrole red (winsor red)
- quinacridone pyrrolidine red and quinacridone violet (permanent alizarin crimson)
- sodium aluminum sulfosilicate (french ultramarine)
- phthalocyanine blue green shade (winsor blue)
- phthalocyanine green and isoindolinone yellow (sap green)
- red iron oxide (burnt sienna)
These colors form a modified secondary palette. You should be able to mix almost any color with this set. Sap Green was chosen because it is easily transformed into almost any green. Burnt Sienna was added because it makes mixing colors for portrait work much easier.
The paints are all from the Winsor & Newton professional line, and are of the highest quality. These specific pigments were chosen because they are non-toxic, lightfast, transparent, and have a high tinting strength.
This kit contains:
- 20 sheets of student-grade paper (140lb, 4x6")
- 5 sheets of Arches cold press (140lb, 4x6")
- 5 sheets of Arches hot press (140lb, 4x6")
Arches is a 100% cotton rag paper that has been a favorite since 1492. It's been favored by artists like Matisse, Picasso, and Dali. It continues to be one of the best papers you can buy.
This kit comes with a 4ml Sakura Koi waterbrush. If you haven't used a waterbrush before, they're an ingenious design where the water sits in the brush, and you don't require a cup of water to paint. The Sakura waterbrush is especially popular because it holds a lot of paint and doesn't shed bristles.
It also comes apart into two segments, so you can put it in the tin, take a few sheets of paper, and have an easy plein air kit.

First painting using the new portable watercolour kit by @justaddwatercolor! Easy to carry and so much fun to use! Included: a handy water brush, incredibly pigmented pots of paint (kept in place with magnetic strips at the bottom!) and a selection of good quality paper. #lockdownhobby made easy! #watercolor #watercolorpainting #painting #art
