I’ve been Doodlewashed & Cotman Review/Demo!

Hi friends! I wanted to share that I was featured on the doodlewash website this week! Doodlewash is the home or world watercolor month and there are lots of inspiring profiles and product reviews on the site. It is worth a look if you like watercolor! I have a much requested review of my own today, a review of my beloved Cotman Watercolors. They are affordable and reliable and easy to find all over the world. Also I will demo the watermelon painting at the end of the video!

Check out the video review here:

Cotman watercolors by Winsor & Newton are probably the most accessible watercolors you can find on a budget. They are available in tubes and pans. Today I will show you the sets I have:
12 sketcher box
24 USA whole pan set
45 UK half pan set
Cotman tubes

Pros:
Price
Easy to Find
Reliable
Uses real pigments and most colors are lightfast

Cons:
These are student grade paints so there is less pigment in there compared to professional paints.

I recommend these to anyone starting out in watercolor or those wishing to try out a new color on a budget. There is noting wrong with these paints and while you might be able to find a better quality paint at a lower price you always know what you will get with these. I give them a thumbs up!

I wanted to thank Aafke Vultink for her idea of saving the wrappers, she gave me permission to share her swatch photo and she explains her process on her blog.

I hope you found this review helpful! For those of you who aren’t painters don’t despair, the kids are back in school so I have more time for more varied projects now! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!! On being Doodlewashed! You certainly deserve recognition for what you do! Your knowledge and enjoyment of what you do is very much appreciated, and you share…no words can describe someone who gives people so much.

    I live in Alberta, Canada, in the middle of nowhere…75 KM (35 Miles) from the nearest grocery store. I love to sketch and have had my own successes, but when it came to adding colour…, well 😳😳😳…that is until I met you!

    Your ‘just do it attitude’ and ‘use what you have’ and utube videos to follow (😻😻😻) have helped me to get started with watercolour. I love it!!! Not good at it, but who cares???

    Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!

    Art should be fun! NO VanGough! (It is a mystery how someone can create, sketch, paint and still be depressed???).

    • Btw, I ordered the Mimik brushes from Jerry’s & got the cheaper ones by accident, they weren’t as good as I thought they should be so did find the more expensive ones, some are on the way!

  8. Hi Lindsay, I watched your video and you said that the cotman paints can be lifted so I would like to ask how does glazing and layering goes with them ?
