Choosing the paints you’ll use in creating watercolors is a major necessity and a major treat. When you buy watercolor paints for the first time, print out the following pigment chart and take it with you. The chart shows just a few of the primary colors available, but it can help you choose at least one primary color from each bias color category so you can make a good six-color palette. From those six colors, you can create hundreds, maybe thousands, of others.
