The colors are rich and vibrant.

This is a perfect "field box" for use with a small watercolor pad that you can carry with you and sketch on the scene.

Winsor & Newton Cotman is really the perfect portable watercolor set.

These watercolor pigments are really great - I've never had a better set of pigments and they're the cheapest AND in the smallest, most compact and elegant case I could find. It's really the perfect portable watercolor set. I highly recommend it!
If you're not a pro, don't be put off by the absence of "black"... you don't need it (you can get a very nice charcoal with a blue and a brown).

I'm primarily writing this review to say that my set actually came with a white, rather than a black, which the other customers were complaining about. So either Winsor & Newton came to the correct conclusion on their own and rectified their mistake, or the seller I received my set from had a different variation, though everything else matches the listing. (for reference, I bought from Hyatt's)

That said, I found the packaging/size/amount of product to be perfect - they each come separately wrapped in their own detachable bins within the palette, making swapping colors and cleaning easy, and each individual plastic bin has the corresponding color printed on the side, in case you forget what color it contained originally. The posted measurements are accurate; double check them to make sure that's what you want before you buy it. The tiny blocks of are about the size of a single lego, which is actually plenty. The tiny brush is actually a two-part, with an long cap that forms the rest of the brush handle. I'm not sure why they bothered, because the assembled brush still fits in the slot. I suppose it protects the brush to some degree?

All things said, if I were to lose my set, I would buy it again. In fact, I am extremely tempted to buy another one now, just because it's adorable, particularly if you have an odd love for miniatures. In fact, you may find yourself tempted to take up miniature painting now that you have a miniature paint set.

I bought this little pocket sized watercolor set to use for casual sketching out of doors and doing quick color studies. It's small and compact. I recommend using a Pentel Arts Aquash Water Brush for convenience.

The colors are bright if you add enough water.

A great, little beginner set at a reasonable price. It would make a lovely present for a young artist.

This set is spectacular all around. Winsor&Newton Cotmans are an excellent choice for beginners, and this set provides an okay palette to start. Several issues (minor, wouldn't influence my decision to buy) include the fact that the pans do not stay held down-something that causes a lot of headache on the move. Even with heavy use and breaking in, two of my pans refuse to stick, a good tip might be to use a little waterproof tape (not glue) to hold them down. The only other main issue is that the hinged area behind the mixing wells can get flooded by washes and will spill out all over whatever surface the set is on when you try to close the lid. I haven't found any solution to this besides placing a paper towel underneath when I'm cleaning up.

The travel "brush" that comes with the set is absolute trash. I have replaced mine with a small flat with a sawed down handle.

The mixing wells are adequate for basic sketching, but I keep a palette with me as well so I don't run out of space for different washes.

Closed, this set measures 5"x2.5"x.75", yet it manages to squeeze in 12 half pans of good, student-grade watercolors, 3 modest wells, and a decent quality #3 brush. My only gripes are the inclusion of Chinese White and the tiny carrying capacity of the brush. I don't care for either, but both are easily replaced; Paynes Gray and a #4 work better for me.

This is a perfect "field box" for use with a small watercolor pad that you can carry with you and sketch on the scene. Field boxes are supposed to be SMALL thats the point. The specs state it is about 5"X 3", that perfect for taking with you hiking, or to parks or to coffee shops or any place you want to sketch and paint with no big heavy,complicated, set up and only water needed. I don't know why they have it listed as a toy. Look at other field boxes they are twice the cost or ten times the cost and thats because they are used by outdoor watercolor painters all over the world. Perfect Plein Air , outdoor painting anywhere you go. All you need is water and some watercolor paper. The brush is included and its a high quality brush. This is not a "kiddy set" its for serious students and artist who like to paint from life outdoors. I used it at the Botanical gardens to sketch tropical birds. You can put it in your back pack or any carry bag you use or even in your purse. There are sets of field boxes that sell for $120 and sometimes more, and this set has 12 colors and a collapsible brush. Use it with a watercolor album by Moleskin or Strathmore 5"X8" or larger watercolor pad or go smaller with Strathmore Watercolor Postcards. Don't forget to get a real sea sponge for picking up or laying down various effects.

I have used this pocket set for years and I love it. The colors are vibrant and more versatile than you would guess for the price and size. The little brush is great for detail work, but you'll need more sizes.
