I agree with what Sandra Said — pay for Artist’s quality, though some call Holbein student grade and I like their paints.  One thing, if you are putting down a lot of paint (other than not having good pigmented paints) is that you may prefer gouache.  It will move like a watercolor rather than stay permanent (like acrylic) but is much denser and opaque.  Also, check on the sites (in case it is not listed) to see if you are using more transparent colors than opaque paint colors.  In every color of the rainbow — even white — there are usually transparent or semi-transparent pigments (for instance quinacridone) versus opaque pigments (cobalt).
