I bought this as an offer ( possibly slightly imperfect or contents slightly different from those shown).I was delighted with the quality of paints and brushes. One of the catches was a bit loose but still functions well enough to carry the box safely.I didn't see it as a pochade box, so didn't have the problem experienced by the one-star reviewer. I agree that a palette would have been useful, as would a bigger size brush, but it was still a great bargain. Dorothy Hill (Northants) on 7 Dec 2012
He is very thrilled with the box as it is so grown up. Has already produced a commendable dragon. I will need to buy him some more paper. Olivia Hibbert (Belper, United Kingdom) on 19 Mar 2015
The bamboo box itself was gorgeous. However, there was a huge difference between the colors listed in the contents of this item and what was received. Six of the twelve colors were different and duplicated items that I already owned, which defeated the purpose of me buying this set. The "Colours are subject to variations" warning in this listing needs to be larger, bolded, and re-worded to note that over 50% of the paints could be different from what is stated. However, a better suggestion would be for Winsor & Newton to give the customer exactly what they are paying for.Jael Thompson (Flowery Branch, USA) on 28 Apr 2019
Ken Bromley's replies:
Hi, we are very sorry there was such a variation in the colours listed. We do advise that colours are subject to variation whenever we list them because the manufaturer sometimes changes them without any notice to us and we do not open up and check every set. However, I understand that 50% of the colours being listed is not good - normally the variation would be a few colours. We have now checked our stock and updated the description in the contents section and also included a photo in the of the colours in the additional images.
