Colors (all Series 1):
Alizarin Crimson
Flame Red
Lemon Yellow
Phthalo Blue
Spectrum Yellow
Ultramarine (Blue)
Zinc White

Sheila Waters teaches color mixing using a double primary set: a warm and cool of each of red, blue and yellow. With the six primaries you can mix brighter colors. (a) The cool yellow tends toward green. The cool blue tends toward green. These two are used for mixing all the colors between yellow and blue. This includes all of the greens, greenish yellows such as chartreuse, and greenish blues such as teal. (b) The warm red tends toward orange. The warm yellow tends toward orange. These two are used for mixing all the colors between yellow and red (oranges and all orange-reds and orange-yellows). (c) The warm blue tends toward purple and is mixed with the warm red for the purplish colors. Winsor & Newton is our most popular gouache and is highly recommended. It is excellent for calligraphy.

For a lightfast Double Primary Set, purchase WNGPDP-S. It contains a similar palette of warm and cool colors, but the pigments are more permanent when exposed to light. The colors are not exactly the same, but they mix in a similar fashion.

All of these colors are fine for work inside of books/journals, for learning color mixing, and for envelope work, but they are not recommended for items that will hang on the wall.

BR30. Cotman Round WC Brush
Cotman Round Watercolor Brush.

Synthetic brush that is slightly stiffer than sable. Recommended by Lisa Engelbrecht; she especially likes the #8. The secret of the Cotman Bushes, from Winsor & Newton, lies in the fibers. By blending fibers of differing thickness, we achieve the three most important qualities sought by the artist. The thicker fibers contribute strength and spring, while the thinner fibers improve color carrying capacity (which have recently been improved by 50%). The two fibers together retain their point, time after time.

Specify size.

PS103. Khadi White Rag Paper
PS103. Khadi White Rag Paper.

210gsm (100lb). Handmade from 100% long fibred cotton rag, giving the paper exceptional strength and durability. Surface-sized with gelatin. Acid free. For calligraphy, drawing, watercolor.

Available in a Rough or Smooth (Cold Press) finish. 22"x30".
Note: The printed catalog mislabels these papers. The paper labeled in CP in the catalog is Rough; the paper labeled HP is Smooth.

This paper from India is a handmade sheet and does not look as refined as European mouldmade watercolor papers such as Arches or Fabriano Artistico. (Its slightly irregular dimensions may be the reason its edges/corners are often bumped). Christopher Haanes has introduced it to North American scribes through his workshops in the US and Canada.

"I particularly like the Khadi's White cotton rag paper, both in smooth and rough." - Christopher Haanes, Norway

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)
