I have a few friends who are keen on trying watercolor - but unsure if they're seriously interested and hence unwilling to spend lots of money.
What are your recommended palettes for newbies? Ideally a minimum number of colors (6?) that's enough to get them started. Good enough quality not to be frustrating!
Some options I've identified - none are great:
DANIEL SMITH Alvaro Castagnet Master Artist Watercolor Set (10 Pack), 5ml
- decent colors, OK price, but will need to set up
Daniel Smith / Jane Blundell - ultimate mixing palette
- love the colors, but way too expensive
Mission Gold Water Color Set, 12 Color
- good price, not sure about quality; will need to set up palette/pans
