- Watercolours & Gouache
Our Watercolour and Gouache section includes artist quality and student quality products. Schmincke Watercolours otherwise known as Schmincke Horadam Aquarelle are the top end of artist quality, Winsor & Newton Artist Watercolour paints are reliable quality and NEW to the site are Daniel Smith watercolours from USA, full of unusual and fascinating colours.
We have Schmincke Horadam watercolour box and tin sets for you to choose from or as an alternative a range of empty Schmincke watercolour tins for you to enjoy making up your own custom set.
Schmincke have made painting with watercolour much more versatile with their new range of watercolour mediums - do have a look at our Painting Mediums section for more information.
Cotman Watercolour is a student range from Winsor & Newton. The watercolour sets are immensely good value for money and perfect for those starting out with watercolour painting.
The difference between watercolour and gouache is the opacity. Gouache is water-soluble and opaque and dries to a more reflective matt sheen. The Umton Barvy Designers Gouache paints have high quality pigments and this tempera gouache dries to a soft matt sheen.
