I got some books out of the library yesterday, one is devoted soley to rating different brands/colours for watercolour.

I currently use a VERY dodgy $12 for 15 colours set of watercolour tubes, and I have three Cotmans (second string) Windsor and Newton colours (I’ve checked out the yellow and now know it will fade very badly).

I like being free and easy with my colour, I mix and muddy with abandon, use colour straight from the tube into a ice cube tray with a bit of water, and most of it goes down the drain at the end of the night.

But I’ve now done at least one piece that I would like to keep. This is no longer a ‘paint and chuck’ exercise.

Is it time to invest in some expensive colours?

Start sorting out possible colours for the BIG QUILT.
