You can get the less expensive "hue" in some colors but open the cap and see the difference between the regular and the hue. I like Gamblin and Windsor Newton but Winton is a fine student-grade brand too. And an acrylic paint for the toning of the canvas, a nice mid value grey or muted neutral color like Raw Sienna or Yellow Ochre...
