MY OBSESSION WITH WATERCOLOR PAINTS…

I absolute love testing out and trying watercolor tube paints. It literally feels like having a rainbow at my finger tips and this magic power to create any color at will. That being said – this is gonna be a long list of colors that I’ve become fond of over the years. Let’s just say after painting with watercolors for over two decades – you create quite a collection.

I have 32 colors currently within my collection. But, by no means, do you need to own every one of these colors. In another post – I’ll break down what are the true essential colors when it comes to watercolor. For now – here’s my extensive list of colors – first written in chart form with info and then with links for the individual colors afterward. Enjoy!

MY LIST OF WATERCOLOR PAINTS…

NOTE: I’m including both Schmincke and Winsor’s version of Opera Rose since this is a primary color. However, you do not need both. I’ve included both here – because I know some of you can’t get Schmincke so Winsor is another good option. Keep in mind though – these are both not lightfast.
