As I mentioned on my watercolor paint page, I was introduced to Winsor Newton watercolor paints by my first instructor. At the time, it was the best value for the money since I used the student grade pigments. Over the years I experimented quite a lot.
I still use Winsor Newton watercolor pigments regularly. For those of you starting out, here are some of their products that you may want to add to your palette (so to speak). They are all high quality and fairly easy on the budget as well.
