    I purchased artist grade paint before I signed up for this course. Should I buy Cotmans instead?Thanks

    I have artist grade watercolors also. I wonder why sometimes we are instructed to use student grade.


    Hi Kristina, good question, I use student grade paints mostly because they have less pigment in them in comparison to artist grade paint which allows them to mix more freely on the paper. By all means use your artists ones but be aware that if they dont blend to easily of not at all this is most likely the reason Thanks again Andrew
