From the manufacturer
Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colour
Cotman Water Colours are a range of water colours that are made to our normal high quality standards but costs are kept to an economical level by replacing some of the more costly pigments with less expensive alternatives.
A similar concept to the Half Pan set, the Cotman Painting PLUS Tube set contains: a Cotman Series 111 No.3 brush and twelve 8 milliliters Cotman Water Colour tubes. Includes: Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red Pale, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue, Prussian Blue, Emerald Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Ivory Black, China White. Actual contents may vary.
Costs are kept to an economical level by replacing some of the more costly pigments with less expensive alternatives. Pigments derive from a number of sources: Some are natural products, notably the earths, e.g. umbers, ochres; others come from metal compounds and are sometimes termed 'traditional' or 'genuine', e.g. ultramarine.
The distillation of petroleum yields an ever widening range of organic pigments which are often termed as 'modern'. Many of the pigments used in Cotman are organic.
The Cotman Water Colour range has a more uniform consistency than the Professional Water Colour range and this benefits beginners as there is less to learn about each individual pigment. The Cotman Water Colour range also relates to the Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colour range, e.g. Burnt Sienna in both ranges has the same hue. This enables artists to use colours from both ranges with minimal adjustment to their technique.
White in the Range
Traditionally the white of the paper provides the brilliance to water colour and can be used as highlights. However, some artists utilize Chinese White for highlights at the end of their painting or in dulling some colour mixtures down.

There are eight mixing holes built into the container itself (about 2.5 inches and 1 1/3 inches), and another mixing palette becomes available by popping it out of the container. The built in mixing container was not too useful for me because I move around a lot while painting, but the removable mixing palette was very nice. I received a Cotman brush which was decent quality and good for a beginner. The paints are locked in place via a snug/snap style housing, so you don't have to worry about paint tube rolling all over the place
The paint was very smooth and the colors were concentrated and vibrant.
I must mention is that the container is slightly awkward to open. It says "Press Here to Open", and as soon as you do that it opens up easily, but it has such an awkward feel to the way it opens. While I have not damaged my container yet, the plastic does feel weak and I worry about what may happen if I drop it from the table.
So to recap:
1. Excellent price!
2. Great selection of paint colors (12).
3. Awesome for beginners and comes with everything to start.
4. Paint quality is very good.
1. Plastic kit container.
2. Awkward feel when opening.
The palette is quite nice as well. Not as bulky as some palettes, but not as compact as an altoids tin. And if you have your doubts about the chosen colors, my solution was taking out the white and black (included) and purchasing (separately) a lemon yellow and sap green. Also, keep in mind that this set can be further customized by buying half/full pans (separately) and hot gluing them in if you want a personalized pan palette. It will really only hold one full size brush, but will also hold one 4ml Sakura water brush and tip if you leave one of the 4 sections open. This is one of the most versatile Cotman sets.
I will be using a combination of full and half pans to house 16 colors in this set, using only 3 of the sections and allowing room for my water brush.
