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 of 12 pinks and violets is especially useful for botanical painting, but it's a great tool for anyone who loves this part of the color wheel. It also makes a great gift for a friend who already has the basic colors and likes to experiment. It's packaged in a sturdy plastic box with a collapsible brush and plenty of space for color mixing. Made in the Netherlands.
