What colours should I buy?

What colours should I buy?

When starting out as an artist you will need to see what paints you have. If you have some already you may only need to top them up.

Here is my recommended start up list;





1.               BASIC LIST of Winsor & Newton Artist Acrylic Colour Professional quality

These paints go a long way and have powerful high quality pigments. They also wont disappoint because unlike any other range out there they have a clear binder medium ensuring next to no colour shift when the paint dries. Enjoy brilliant colour in your paintings.
