Super Cheap paint. Great Products. Easy Click Links.
Unbelievably cheap prices on famous, top of the line Winsor & Newton professional paint from the UK.
The savings outweigh the shipping costs by a mile. Buy the biggest tube you feel comfortable with (recommendations below) and the bigger, the more money you will save per ml of paint. $0 .73c per ml? (Jacksons, 37ml Burnt Sienna) or $5.59 per ml (Popular Australian Art chain store 5mls Burnt Sienna.) I know which I'd choose. Remember, W & N is not the only brand I recommend, but it is the best.
Read my TIPS below for best purchase practices.
Level 1 colours: * Cobalt Blue, * French Ultramarine Blue, * Aureolin Yellow, * Raw Sienna,
* Burnt Sienna, and * Permanent Rose.
SIZE: For students who know they love it: Recommend 37ml in all, except 14ml in Permanent Rose. (and Aureolin if 37ml is not available.)
Level 1 Equipment: For all heavier, bulky items: paper sheets and pads, other random equipment and MANY other excellent brush choices, check your Level 1 equipment list and I recommend you purchase those at your local store.

Level 2 colours: * New Gamboge, * Permanent Alizarin Crimson, * Winsor Blue Green Shade. For students who know they love it: Recommend 14ml in all these colours. Also, please top up Level 1 colours in the biggest tubes you feel comfortable with. See recommendations above.

Level 3 there are no new colours for Level 3
please just top up the colours you already have - the biggest tubes you feel comfortable with. See lists and buttons above.
Level 3 Equipment: I don't recommend you buy any of the Level 3 equipment from overseas.
However, if you still have not bought a sable, or faux sable, I suggest you should do that now, as well as some of the other optional brushes from Level 2. (Some listed above, but first, see the Level 2 equipment list
Level 4 OPTIONAL colours: please top up the colours you already have - the biggest tubes you feel comfortable with.) If you WANT to, you can purchase some of these extra colours, which will really fill out your palette. They're not essential, although I WOULD buy White Gouache.
Optional: * Sap green, * Cadmium Red, * Indigo, *Quinacridone Gold , * Manganese Blue and a * tube of White Gouache. For students who know they love it: I Recommend 14ml in all these colours.
Level 4 Equipment: If you have not yet bought some extra brushes as suggested in the Level 2 equipment list, I suggest you do so now. You will also find a hake very useful in painting for great big washes like an underpainting.
