Watercolour Sets for Travelling

 

A large number of the watercolour sets manufactured by the leading international watercolour painting brands such as Winsor and Newton, Jackson’s and Old Holland Classic Watercolours are travels sets, specifically designed to remove the logistical nightmare that taking your watercolour equipment away on holiday or out into the landscape can be.  Most of these sets are enamelled metal or plastic, and contain a fold out palette, and oftena space for carrying a water bottle and a travel brush.  Please see the details on each product’s backpage.

 

Brands that manufacture travel sets for the watercolour artist:

Jackson's Professional Watercolour Sets

Old Holland Classic Watercolour Sets

Schmincke Horadam Watercolour Sets

Winsor and Newton Artists' Watercolour Sets

Daler Rowney Artists' Watercolour Sets

Rembrandt Watercolour Sets

Watercolour Sets for Beginners

 

Some sets have everything a beginner would need to start discovering this exciting painting method.  In terms of price it would make the most sense to buy a beginner’s set made in one of the student ranges, however the professional range sets do give better value for money than if you were buying the colours and brushes individually. Generally speaking the best watercolour sets for beginners contain a basic palette of colours (usually anything ranging from 8-36 colours) in either pans or tubes, a couple of basic brushes and perhaps some mediums and a palette. Usually pans and half pans are thought to be easiest to use, as there is less temptation to use too much paint and keep the colours translucent, i.e. how they’re supposed to be used.  Winsor and Newton’s Cotman range and Reeves watercolours even have sets that include a table easel!

 

A few of our recommendations for beginners looking to buy a watercolour set would be:

 

Jackson’s Professional Watercolour set of 12 Full Pans

Schmincke Horadam set of 12 half pans

Winsor and Newton Lightweight Metal Sketchers Pocket Box

Daler Rowney 12 x half pan metal set

Rembrandt 12 x half pan metal set

Any of the St. Petersburg White Nights' Watercolour Sets

Any of the Winsor and Newton Cotman Watercolour Sets

Reeves Watercolour Sets

Lascaux Primary Set of 7 bottles

 

 

Watercolour Sets for good value!

 

As with all sets of things, watercolour sets are better value when bought as a set, as opposed to buying the individual components of a set individually.  All sets will have a selection of colours that cover the spectrum of the full range that is manufactured. For those who get frustrated by the colour choices some companies make for their brands, fear not! Jackson’s Professional watercolour range is truly unique in that you have the option to pick your own colours, whilst still receiving the set price!
