Golden, the oil and acrylics company recently released a line of watercolours.
Curry's have them on sale ...
I bought a set of six "High Chroma" colours that is composed of what I call the New colours (Quinacridone Gold, Pyrrole Orange and other fanciful names) as opposed to the traditional colours (burnt umber, raw sienna.etc)
I started with new paper well actually it's not paper (as in made from pulp or cotton) but
crushed rock ..Terraskin, produced by a Canadian Company.
I abandoned the watercolour fairly quickly and reverted to a more traditional cold pressed paper.
More on the Terraskin later.
