Cotman, from the makers of Winsor & Newton Artist Watercolours, offers a comparatively inexpensive selection of good quality watercolours. The Cotman line includes both traditional pigments and reliable synthetic colours that replace some of the more rare and expensive pigments used in the Artist Watercolours.
Cotman colours represent superb value and are compatible with acrylics and gouache to produce combinations of opacity and transparency. Winsor & Newton recommends the following colours for the Cotman basic palette: Lemon Yellow Hue, Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue, Cadmium Red Hue, Permanent Rose, Alizarin Crimson Hue, Ultramarine, Phthalo Blue (Intense Blue), Viridian Hue, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, and Chinese White.
Traditional pigments and reliable synthetic colours. Compatible with acrylics and gouache to produce combinations of opacity and transparency. In single tubes, or in set with round brush and tray.
