Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Compact Set

Well, here it is! My newest interest and very first attempt at watercoloring. This is my very first paint palette I'll be using and bonding with. The Winsor & Newton Compact Set. There are 14 colors in half pans.

 Look at the adorableness of its size. It's perfect for weekend trips and travels, don't you think?

Here's a look inside the palette. As you can see, the colors are all nicely wrapped and labeled.

But let's take a moment to look at this little water holder. Can you say "cute!" I most likely will only be using this if I have no desk space for a cup of water, say like a train ride or something. But still, I like the fact that it's there!

The palette has two slits which allow this water dish to be placed either on the left or right side.


Here's a better close up of all of the color names. Starting from first top left to right- Lemon Yellow Hue, Cadium Yellow Hue, Cadium Red Pale Hue, Cadium Red Hue, Alizarin Crimson Hue, Purple Lake, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue Hue, Sap Green, Viridian Hue, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Chinese White.

Once I test and put these colors to use, I'll be sure to post an update. In the meantime, feel free to follow along through my new watercoloring journey on YouTube, or on Instagram. I love meeting new friends!

If you're interested in purchasing this palette as well, you may be able to find this at your local Michaels craft store, like I did. (Be sure to check for any available 40-50% coupons before you go!) Amazon sells them for a good price as well.

Below's a video showing more details of the palette, along with a few other craft supplies I picked up to go with it. I'm excited to get started!

And to all of my American friends, enjoy the upcoming Memorial Weekend! I'll be here, at home, just painting and crafting away. What are your plans? Also, any watercoloring tips or recommendations for this newbie here?

  3. Lovely review, I never thought about using this watercolor palette before and always gravitated towards the Koi one but this one looks nice, too! I like the little water holder!

  4. Hi Michelle!I ve benn using watercolour for quite a long time, both in my art journaling and illustration projects and the best advice is simply to experiment, don't be afraid and give it some time in order to become a master on that medium! Lately, I ve been using a waterbrush instead of a simple brush, especially if I want to do some handwritting. It is much better and more convenient when traveling, even for drawing! You can check my instagram feed @anna_p_illustration on how I use it for my art journals! Have a great day! :)
