    Matching "Real" Watercolour Colours

    Hi - first post...please be gentle
    I have dabbled with real watercolours, but am now entering the world of cyber-painting, and am INCREDIBLY impressed with Artrage's ability to recreate the watercolour experience.

    Most of the "Learn to Paint" type books I have refer to "Viridian", or "Payne's Grey", or "Cadmium Yellow" etc.

    Is there an easy or even existing way to set these colours up as "Favourites", so that I can follow the book instructions, (assuming that I can figure out the RGB code for each of the colours I want to have in my "palette").

    Many thanks
    Bruce

    Hi Bruce, welcome to the forums

    I think you might like the following site which lists the rgb values for over 50 well known brands of water colour paints.

    That way you can follow along with the same brand of watercolour paints that the instructor is using.
