Watercolor Paint Sets for Beginners

June 8, 2009

Watercolor paints can be purchased in several forms: dry pans, (traditional childrens watercolor sets) small colored cakes (just add water), or moist tubes, that look like oil paint tubes.

In whatever form you choose to purchase your paints, moist or dry, you typically arrange them in a palette that has paint wells for your pure colors, and plenty of space for mixing paints.

If you are just getting started, a watercolor set is a great choice. A nice intermediate kit is the Grumbacher Academy Watercolor Set that includes 10 tubes of paint. Another budget minded choice would be the Winsor & Newton Cotman Deluxe Watercolor Studio Set which includes 12 color tubes and mixing trays.
