I use this web site for color information as well as pamplets for all the brands. http://personales.upv.es/gbenet/teor...r/waterfs.html
It is good to learn the Pigment codes that are given right on the tube. That gives you a better clue about what is inside the tube than the name.
I learned allot obout pigments and brand differences from the book "Incredible Light and Texure in Watercolor" by Jame Toogood. The information he gives on watercolor pigments and the brands are valuable.
Also, The Winser & Newton web site will send you a free color comparison chart of their own watercolor paint on real watercolor paper if you email them and ask. They did for me. The 1st real sample sheet I've ever found!
