Artist quality watercolour paints
I use 5 blues, 4 reds and 4 yellows, mostly Winsor & Newton pans. Single pigment paints are best. I've put the pigment numbers in brackets and you can find these numbers on the tubes of paint or on colour charts from the manufacturer. I find that these colours allow me to mix pretty much anything!
