The watercolor dot cards is by and large one of the best products I've ever bought, and something I wish every watercolor company did. I bought this from Daniel Smith's official site, but it should be said here. The colors exceeded my expectations, especially for what you get which are small samples of all their colors available. They stretch a lot longer than you'd expect, and the colors themselves are beyond marvelous. I plan on buying a few full size paint tubes for my supplies.
This is an excellent watercolor set to start to work with. I've used this mainly for portrait and nude paintings. Sometimes I'd mix it with a white paste to create my own custom gouache. The beauty of the set is that they are in tubes, so mixing and making your own mixes is very, very easy to do.i have been using this set up for almost 5 years now, and I always come back to this set for my creativity.
