About This Product

This romantic set of Horadam Gouache features some of our very favorite colors: a range of richly saturated natural tones that remind us of late afternoon's slanted, warm sunlight. We've included the warm tones of earth and sun, but also the cool shadow colors that always found with them.

It's a lovely limited palette for illustration and stylized painting, and it also makes a great booster pack for any gouache collection. Try adding this set to your palette if you're looking to create moody, sun-dappled landscapes and Technicolor urban sketches.

The colors included are #354 Madder Lake Deep, #230 Indian Yellow, #532 Olive Green, #476 Prussian Blue, and #470 Cobalt Blue Light.

Five 15 mL tubes. Made in Germany; curated in St. Louis.

About Horadam Gouache:

Schmincke Horadam Gouache is a professional-grade opaque watercolor with intense color and natural opacity. No white is added to these superior gouache colors; they have their strong covering power and velvet matte finish because they contain the maximum possible pigments per milliliter of gum arabic binder.

During our studio test, we were delighted with the indulgent smoothness of Horadam Gouache. It dilutes easily, without breaking, maintaining a pleasant body even when lots of water is added. Unlike cheaper alternatives, Horadam Gouache allows your brush to glide, not stutter and stick. Finally, we were impressed with the colors, which are easily the most saturated we have seen in any line of gouache.

With a bit of water, dry Horadam Gouache can be lifted from paper, and any paint left to dry on your palette can be reactivated with water and used again.

We stock all 48 colors of Horadam Gouache. Just click the Color Options tab to browse them all and start assembling your new palette!
