Trust me, when you go online to look at their colors, they will NOT be indicative of the real colors for their paint choices. It's well worth the $25-30 to buy a Daniel Smith sampler (you get 4 sheets, containing 238 dabs of paint that you wet out to create actual paint colors). One of the sheets actually contains mostly iridescent or "interference" colors which I don't see most watercolor painters using to a great degree, but it's nice to know they're there. Might be good for illustrations?
