I just reviewed this excellent video course  on mixed media, pen ink and watercolour by Matt Rota. 

The course is sold on Craftsy, and Craftsy has extended a 57% discount to all ParkaBlogs readers until 1 July 2015.

Craftsy is currently having a Daniel Smith sale. Each 15ml tube is about USD $0.50 - $2 cheaper than Amazon. Free shipping for $99 and above.

Out of the 35 colours, only the following four are more expensive on Craftsy.

1. Yellow Ochre
2. Quinacridone Magenta
3. Quinacridone Gold
4. Neutral Tint

My personal recommendation would be

Hansa Yellow Medium
Quinacridone Burnt Scarlet
Permanent Alizarin Crimson
French Ultramarine
Phthalo Blue (Green Shade)
Cerulean Blue
Phthalo Green (Blue Shade)
Sap Green
Burnt Sienna
Neutral Tint
