Artists’ Watercolour is a professional-quality watercolour. Based on the finest modern and traditional pigments, it is precisely formulated to offer unparalleled performance and permanence. Choose from an extended range of brilliant colours, designed to create perfect washes of pure transparent colour without hard edges.

Artists' Watercolours are characterized by their rich, free-flowing colour, which never leaves any hard lines at the edge of a wash. Their unparalleled performance is a product of precise formulations, based on the suspension of the very finest quality pigments in an aqueous solution of gum Arabic. Only the best pigments, regardless of cost, are used in the manufacture of Artists’ Watercolours.

Tinting strength:

Artists’ Watercolours are formulated to maximise the varying tint strengths of different pigments.

Black & White:

Watercolourists can choose to mix their own dark tones and blacks, or use ready-mixed blacks. Ivory Black is the most widely used. On its own, it’s a velvety black with warm brown undertones. Lamp Black is a cooler colour, with blue undertones, which is more opaque than Ivory Black. Both may be mixed with other colours to create darker shades. Chinese White is a traditional white used for highlighting and mixing pale pastel tints. Titanium White is a newer, more opaque pigment with greater tinting strength. All transparent colours become opaque when mixed with Chinese White or Titanium White.
