Watercolor supplies for novices: Types And Basic Set of Colors

Watercolors are divided into fine and extra-fine, in godet and half godet, or tubes. In this article, I will describe to you the difference between dry and tube watercolors. This explanation will allow you to choose the colors that you consider most appropriate for your artistic needs. These colors are great for beginners but also for those who already paint in watercolor. On the market, there are many pocket sets, useful both for painting at home and outdoors. A basic color set consists of the following colors: Pale Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Red, Crimson Red, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Veronese Green, Yellow Ochre, Natural Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Shadow Land, Chinese White. The difference between watercolors godet and tubes is essentially that the first are dry, the second are wet. In case you are a street watercolorist and you need to move around a lot, the first type would certainly be more suitable. Unlike godet, tube watercolors do not need to be dissolved and this can be an advantage, but not so decisive compared to the comfort of the godet.
