NB: Names of colours vary with different brands of paint. This list represents the most common names for fairly pure, warm and cool tones of each of the 3 primary colours (red, yellow, blue). Pure cadmiums and cobalts are very expensive - buy the hues, they are cheap and mix well. Inexpensive paint brands that don’t include cadmium hues will have the same colour under different names, you can pick by comparing the colour to some expensive cadmiums of another brand. No Liquitex
