Wallace Seymour Greatest Hits Natural Pigments Watercolour Set
Much like making gnocchi, where you want as little flour as possible - making good watercolour should involve the bare minimum of ingredients, by passing fillers and additives, revealing each pigment's own unadulterated expression in colour and texture. It is indeed in the face of declining quality and increased mass manufacture that two artists, Rebecca Wallace and Pip Seymour, began making paints to their own tastes and recipes looking to emulate art materials from the past, with more variable grain and natural appearance.
Produced from the finest ingredients, Sudanese gum arabic and Italian Acacia honey and many rare, unusual and including now defunct pigments, the paint sets presented here are built around a common origin - either geographical place or material compound, to provoke more consideration for pigment, its history and effect in art history, as well as a starting point for artistic exploration of colour.
Here presented is the ultimate set for the more seasoned watercolourists amongst us, with a generous 108 hues for maximum chromatic scope. From punchy neons to grounding earth tones, any subject can be beautifully rendered with the colours in this set.Details:
