About This Product
This special edition set of Schmincke Horadam watercolors takes a natural property of certain artist pigments and turns it into an eye-popping special effect. Pro watercolorists know that some pigments, like ultramarine blue and natural earth colors, form pockets of darker pigment when applied to paper. This textured look is beloved by landscape painters because it creates a complex and organic look with one brushstroke.
Horadam "Supergranulation" colors take this granulating effect to the next level. By mixing together highly granulating colors that naturally separate from one another, each Supergranulation color explodes into ripples and pools of contrasting pigment when you use it on paper. The result is the most intensely granulating watercolor we've ever seen, enabling you to paint dreamy sunsets, extraterrestrial landscapes, and complex natural light with ease.
The Supergranulation Volcano set is a new release for 2022, and it adds much-needed intensity and warmth to the Supergranulation lineup. The saturated colors in this set will be welcome tools in any landscape, botanical, or abstract painter's toolkit.
This set includes five 15 mL tubes: Volcano Yellow, Volcano Orange, Volcano Red, Volcano Violet, and Volcano Brown. They're packed in a rustic, sustainably harvested wood box with metal latch.
Try combining this set with the other Supergranulation themed sets to create a more complex palette. You can also mix Supergranulation colors with other Schmincke Horadam watercolors.
