The Gardener's Set
This set is designed to be both lightweight and very versatile, and is specifically geared to depicting plants. CMYKW colors are included in 5 natural seashell pans, and 5 Half-Pans of natural pigment colors are included. The natural pigments in Half-Pans are intended as base colors that will be used most often. The CMYKW colors are there to make minor adjustments to your base colors to achieve the correct hue. For example, Green Earth is well-suited as a base foliage color, but can bee turned cooler (to match kale leaves) with the addition of Phthalo. Cyan, and it can be brightened and warmed (to match fresh endive or lettuce) with the addition of a touch of Quinox. Yellow. Slate is well-adapted for shadows. The CMYKW colors are wonderful for pops of colors in blooms or fully ripened produce.
