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 wider Palette of twelve 8 milliliters tubes of Cotman Water Colour, extending mixing and painting possibilities. Includes: Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Crimson Alizarine, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue, Prussian Blue, Emerald Green, Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, Raw 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.

Top Customer Reviews
-Good value; the tubes are deceivingly small but the amount of paint you use each time is almost microscopic so a little goes a long way
-Nice variety of colors
-All paints are very highly pigmented
-Metal tube prevents air from entering the tube and drying out the paint
-Paints can be mixed together to customize new shades
-Opacity of color can be adjusted by the amount of water you add
Aspects That Definitely Have A Learning Curve To 'Em:
-Amount of paint you need to put down-->I learned this the hard way, DO NOT, do NOT squirt out the same amount as your would acrylic paint, in the tube, the paint is incredibly concentrated and so when you add water to it, if you squirt out a lot of paint, you'll end up with a lot of water coloring paint and not know what to do with it
-Do I add water to the paint or vice versa? -->I'm still not sure which way it goes but I find it easiest to first add the paint to my palette (since essentially I'm just dabbing the tip of the tube onto the palette) and then adding in water
-Making new colors-->this can be done couple of way. So far I've found 2. The first way is to dab the colors you want to mix first onto the palette and then add water. The second way, which I found is helpful when you don't want to waste colors that you've already added water to, is to take some of a colored water (i.e. a previous color you've made) and add it to either another colored water or to new dab of paint. (ex. dab of red from tube + blue water = purple water)
I am used to using Daniel Smith ($$$) on finer pieces, but I enjoy using these for practice and less serious pieces.
These colors are okay, I have produced some lovely colors by mixing and messing around with the colors provided.
My biggest complaint is the amount of paint (a lot) you must use in order to produce anything that doesn't look very dull.
I work with a large pallet and in order to get any color on my brush I really have to work the paint in the pallet before applying.
I will continue to buy these because I am frugal and they get the job done well enough.
