Van Gogh watercolors are a transparent paint with intense, lightfast colors. Unlike many other student-grade paints, they are quite pure and strong, so they mix and dilute well. You can make beautiful light colors and vibrant dark colors easily.
This "pocket box" is a great starting point for new watercolorists who want to work with high-quality materials. It's also great for advanced painters who need a set of colors for outdoor or travel sketching. You get twelve of the most-used colors in the Van Gogh range, packaged in a sturdy plastic box with a collapsible brush and plenty of space for color mixing. Made in the Netherlands.
