There’s something to be said for traditions. Sennelier
has been making watercolors for more than a century, utilizing a production
method that continues to stand up not only to time but artists’ ever-changing
wants and needs, as well. That has made the company’s watercolor line a go-to
for painters inspired by the great French Impressionists. But, while the
grindstones continue to rotate and work out every imperfections, Sennelier has
also evolved to incorporate cutting-edge techniques in pigment composition.
Really, you get the best of all eras, old and new, equaling a perfect wash free
of particles. These watercolors are a little honey, a little Kordofan Gum
Arabic as a binding agent, and a lot of patience. There’s a 24-hour wetting
procedure that every pigment goes through, along with multiple runs through the
grindstone. What comes out the other side is a high-quality product with a
wonderful variety; why, just look at that dazzling array of colors. They all go
on so easily, too. But, take a deep look into the colors you apply and you’ll
be transfixed by an uncommon depth, a brilliance that’s both subtle and yet
almost alive. That’s what you get when you take your time and master your
craft. Traditions are traditions for a reason: it’s a sign that something
should last. Pick up a 10 mL tube today and we bet you'll love what you create
every day after.
