The Sketcher's Set
Greenleaf & Blueberry Artisanal Handmade Watercolors
This palette is comprised of 16 magnetized Half-Pans of color enclosed in a Large Travel Tin, and accompanied by a hand-painted color chart.
I designed a new palette based on our most unique colors. Each of these is made with natural pigment, with the exception of Smalt and Potter’s Pink, which are Historical Pigments.
Each color is a single pigment paint, artist grade, and named for the one pigment it contains. The thing about natural pigments is that they each have their own personality, expressed in handling characteristics and hue, determined by their unique chemistry and accessory minerals based on location source. One of the things I have come to love about natural pigments is that they are unique to place, and therefore possess a certain terroir. A Red Ochre from France will be different from a Red Ochre from Morocco or Australia. Even batches from the same region and the same mine can differ. It’s something to both savor and celebrate.
This is one of the larger Travel Palettes we have offered. Each color will handle differently from the next, providing both creative challenges and opportunities. It includes our new Meteorite, and even Chilean Lapis Lazuli. A limited run of these because a few of the colors we only produce in micro batches.
