Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolors are student grade, which means that some of the pigments used to make certain colors are synthetic substitutes. These substitutions are made to keep costs low, as genuine pigment costs can be incredibly expensive. But, for a fraction of the price, these are fabulous to start off with because of their vibrancy and smoothness. Winsor & Newton Cotman is what got me hooked on watercolors! While I like to use artist grade watercolors, I still have a special place in my heart for the Cotman palette. You’ll see that I use these colors for many watercolor projects here on TPK!
