If there is a "-" sign it means that I couldn't find a good counterpart. In this case you may want to: 1) mix other colors to find a good match; 2) use different colors or 3) use colors from a different brand.
4
Please, remember that even though pigment numbers can be the same, the colors may look differently in different brands. Treat each color individually, they are all beautiful in their own way.

Below you can find the most up-to-date colors from my palette (I use Winsor&Newton Professional Watercolor Paints).
