A Japanese watercolor known for an extensive color selection, Holbein produces several unique and very popular colors including Opera (a lovely pink hue) and Shadow Green (a black pigment with a green undertone). Made without the wetting agent ox gall that most other companies add to their water paints, Holbein is a slightly ''slower' paint. 5 and 15ml tubes.
For the past 100 years Holbein color laboratories have developed and produced its moist transparent watercolor as an industry leader in brush handling qualities, light fastness, physical permanence, color vigor and a full range palette that retains its clean, crisp and brilliant characteristics.
Arranged within the primary red, yellow and blue groups, and augmented compatibly by earthen and green groups necessary to accurately reproduce images of the world around us, Holbein has produced exceptional colors, each conceptually intended to enhance the artist's ability to improve the results achieved for specific subject matter.
