Japanese watercolor set

I'm going to work on some watercolor paintings again. I decided to put a sample out of my colors for reference and thought I'd share. I bought these in Tokyo and I do wish I had picked up a bigger set. Next time hopefully. These colors are straight out of the tubes.

    1. Hi Jane, yes, I've used some of the colors in a few small paintings previously. I will post some paintings as I work on them this week. I'm a little behind as I caught a head cold and just couldn't make myself paint. I'm am pretty inexperienced with watercolor, but I do like these so far. They almost seem like they have the consistency of gouache and can go on pretty opaque. They even come with white. I'm going to see if I can follow some tips posted by Maggie Latham on her blog and FB group. http://maggielathamfineart.blogspot.com/. Thanks for visiting.
