New Colours

Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Box

New paint just arrived! Upgrading my color a bit, but still quite inexpensive. And I love how small and compact this set is. It’s the Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colours Sketchers’ Pocket Box with 12 colors, palette and a travel brush. I can’t wait to try it out! #doodlewash

    I doodle a lot and would save this for good stuff. I use a lot of kid’s art supplies for my doodles. But I want this set too!!! Must get.

      You should! It’s a wonderful little set! It can be spendy at full retail, but you can pick it up for $18 on Amazon usually. Also…if you keep tracking it the price drops occasionally. I got this one for $16.50!

    I picked up my box a few weeks ago. This box is ancient (mid 80s) as are the sketches in my old sketch book hopping and skipping over the years. These sketches and tests brought back memories like no photo could. Some are terrible and some show me I’m not that bad (just practice more).

    My biggest problem is determining which colors are in the box. There are 18 plus two tubes; one ivory black and one china white. I did a color chart of them yesterday and tried matching them up to WN color chart online with little luck–think it was the cloudiness of the day. I might have to email WN to see if anyone there has a clue since I find nothing close in age online.

    Anyway, keep up the cool blog. I liked a couple of the try-it-anyhow write-ups because, as you noted, trying out stuff is how we learn. The worst that can happen is a sheet of paper is now ugly but learning has happened and that’s beautiful.

    Oh, the other thing that’s happening is that I’m smiling for no particular reason. Someone might think I’ve fallen in love. And I have; I’ve rediscovered my love of colors and paints and creativity.

      Aww I’m so thrilled you’ve fallen in love again, Sandy! 😃💕 That’s so beautiful to hear! I’ve no idea about paints from back then as I only started painting about 3 years ago now. But that sounds perfectly awesome! And yes to try-it-anyhow… that’s pretty much the way we roll here at Doodlewash! 😉 Happy painting!
