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 Tina, interesting to see how they work. Did you try them yet?

    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. Thanks for visiting.

  2. I wish I could get the hang of watercolors, but I never have ;(
