Description

This Cotman Water Colour Tube Set of 12 8ml tubes comes from Winsor & Newton, the company that created water colour.

  • There is 170 years of expertise invested in this collection, with the emphasis on quality balanced with affordable prices.
  • Since the greatest expense comes from the source pigments, the more expensive of these are substituted with alternatives to create hues that still provide high tinting strength and transparency.
  • This not only keeps costs down, but also makes for more consistent performance across the range, which can be of great benefit if you’re new to water colours.

Please note the colours in this set may vary depending on the stock at Winsor & Newton.

Q&A (7)
Q What surface do watercolours work best on?
A

You can paint watercolour onto a variety of different surfaces. However, you want to aim to use paper that weighs either 300gsm or more. For more information about what paper we sell for watercolour, click here.

Q How do Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolour differ from Winsor & Newton Professioinal/Artists’ Watercolour?
A

Unlike Winsor & Newton Professional/Artists’ Watercolour, the Cotman range only includes 40 colours and are made by using hues of certain colours in order to save cost on sourcing expensive pigment. The Cotman range still have brilliant transparency and high tinting strength, but the Professional/Artists’ range are the highest quality watercolour from Winsor & Newton.

Q What brush should I use to paint water colour?
A

You will need a soft and absorbent brush to paint watercolour. Sable brushes are typically used for this, however you can use a soft bristled synthetic brush as an alternative should you wish. Round brushes with short handles are the most common shaped brush used as these are an ideal shape and size for the fine detailing and small scale traditionally associated with watercolour painting. However, watercolour brushes come in various shapes and sizes, such as Flat, Filbert, Mop, Fan, Rigger, Sword Liner and Angled brushes which all offer different brush stroke styles and effects.

Q What are the benefits of using watercolour tube paint as oppose to using watercolour pans?
A

The choice to use tubes as oppose to pans is mostly down to personal preference. Watercolour tube paints offer better colour intensity than pans and are ideal for use when painting larger scale works and washes. When it comes to watercolour tube paints, a little bit of paint goes a very long way. This makes it easier to attain a higher level concentration of paint and water. They can also be easier to mix with other colours than pans.

Q What are the benefits of using watercolour pans as oppose to using watercolour tube paints?
A

The choice to use pans as oppose to tubes is mostly down to personal preference. Watercolour pans offer a quicker and easier experience when painting in watercolour, with less mess and less wasted paint than when using watercolour tube paints. The small size of the pans make them portable and easy to store which is particularly useful when painting on location.

Q What series are these paints?
A

These paints are not priced in series numbers as they are beginner/student quality. In the interest of being cost effective, beginner/student quality paints are often made by mixing more economic pigments in order to create ‘hues’ that mimic more expensive pigment.
