I love this product! The pigments are rich and vibrant. Even when dry they are still deep and rich. Also when they are spread in a wash they do not disintegrate into transparent dots of color like cheaper watercolor. I also like that the individual colors pots can be removed and that they are decent size pots of color. They spread and blend beautifully and work well with watercolor crayons.
In the Dragon Fly painting I married washes of color and you can see how deep the colors are. In the rose bud you can see how nice the graduated wash performed (this was my very first time I did a gradient wash and it came out beautiful).
