This mixture of colors is perfect for beachscapes and, when combined with our other 2 Susie Short watercolor sets, completes Susie's palette. You'll have every color she uses in her demonstration DVD's!
The set contains the following 15ml tubes:
- Nickel Azo Yellow - Use this color where transparency and staining ability are desired. Try it along with or in place of Nickel Titanate Yellow and Naples Yellow.
- Rich Green Gold - Amazingly compatible with earth pigments and Quinacridones alike, this is a warm mossy green. It is richer and warmer than the original brighter Green Gold it replaces, and has an inviting glow. Explore fruits and vegetables, leaves and landscapes, substituting Rich Green Gold for other greens in familiar mixtures. Low-staining and lightfast, Rich Green Gold lifts with ease from either a concentrated or dilute wash and from either damp or dry work. Try it as a glaze for a real treat.
- Ultramarine Turquoise - Semi-transparent Ultramarine Turquoise is the granular, low-staining "cousin" of Phthalo Turquoise. Use it when less stain and more granulation is desired, and consider it for an interesting, non-traditional glaze.
- Cobalt Teal - An extraordinary pastel grayed turquoise. Use this pigment to attain bright, transparent shadows. Also use it to render the desired patina on the copper pot. An inorganic pigment, it is considered transparent and non-staining (or low-tinting) and ideal for glazing methods. Cobalt Teal Blue's ability to create soft edges, to lift and to mix readily made Cobalts valuable contributions to watercolor palettes.
- Manganese Blue Hue - This cool turquoise blue is ideal for creating form or indicating space. It is a medium-staining semiopaque pigment with wonderful granulating properties. A good substitute for Cerulean Blue, Manganese Blue Hue offers an additional advantage: it mixes well with other non-staining semiopaques to create a mottled texture in underlying colors.
- Cerulean Blue - A superb mixing color. Think of it as a cleaner, brighter and slightly warmer alternative to the Cerulean Blue Chromium we've always sold. A bit less green, it's a truer blue that will be a versatile component of any palette.
- Cobalt Violet Deep - This pigment creates glowing shadows with interesting granulation. Cobalt Violet Deep is intense. This inorganic, transparent and low staining pigment is ideal for glazing methods. Its ability to create soft edges, to lift and to mix readily makes Cobalt Violet Deep a valuable contribution to watercolor palettes.
