Hi Clare,

Winsor & Newton Designer's Gouache is the best brand, actually the only 
brand that I will use for paints.  Colors?  Well, here's a basic set of 
colors to get you started:  Cobalt Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow 
Pale, Permanent Green Med., Zinc White & Permanent White

  Marc Drogin's Medieval Calligraphy
  History of Illuminated Manuscript by Christopher De Hamel
  The Illuminated Page by Janet Backhouse

BTW, I'm at work too and would rather answer your questions than work.  ;-D
Have a great weekend!

In service,
Baroness Ceinwen~
