can anyone tell me what typ of water colour is best to paint with?

Wow = that's an interesting question - I think it depends on your budget as much as anything
I use Dr. PH Martin's concentrated watercolor dyes but they are quite expensive :tears:

It's true you've asked an interesting question - one that's been the subject of many essays and arguments over the years. My advice is:

If you want to learn how to control watercolors pan paints are often the best way to start. After several decades I still have (and often use) two Pelikan sets of 24 colors each in transparent and opaque shades. The Yarka St. Petersburg and Winsor Newton pan sets are also very lovely and not especially expensive. All of these suggestions depend, of course, on where you live and what's available there. My other suggestion is to always use the best watercolor paper you can afford when you want to paint something nice. Bad paper will kill the effects of the best pigments while good paper will enhance the effects of the cheapest watercolor paint.

Once you gain some experience with the paints you choose (believe me, paint sets can last for many years and many allow you to purchase replacement pans if your favorite color runs out) - anyway, once you feel comfortable you can always purchase tube colors that will expand your selection. I have Rembrandts, Daniel Smith, M. Graham and a few others in my cupboards. Beyond tube colors there are watercolor dyes as Cmac13 mentioned. Some people even paint watercolorish pictures using other liquids -like tea, coffee and wine.

The main thing is to enjoy yourself while you experiment.
Best wishes :)

I am trying to contribute art on the page. I was declined yesterday because I didn't put what kind of art media used. Now I am getting a message saying I cannot submit because it would exceed the 1 submission a day? What up with that?? 
Cmac13 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014   General Artist
If you didn't put the media used in your submission it gets rejected :nod: and you can only submit ONE image every twenty four hours - so - you'll have to wait until tomorrow to resubmit the image.

Okay, I think I have it now... I will try again tomorrow. Thanks for the help
