Artists' Watercolor

Artists' Watercolor

Much like grand cru wines from the vineyards of France, Sennelier Artists’ Watercolors offer unique character derived from the traditional French method of crafting paints. Colors are vibrant, delicate in transparency and subtle in tonality. The intensity of the colors is extraordinary. When dry, they have a distinctive satin luminosity known as a “French finish.” The range of 80 colors includes exquisite lake colors and unique hues long since discontinued by other manufacturers.


  • Made of pure pigments, presoaked in distilled water to better fuse with the binder for flawless color washes
  • Cold ground on traditional granite grindstones to ensure no alteration of a color’s natural hue
  • Bound with gum arabic from Senegal, slowly dissolved in its natural nugget state, to produce a binder that fuses completely with the pigment for superior washes
  • The secret ingredient—honey from the Alps—imparts a distinctive luster 
  • Recent enhancements feature increased light fastness and flow
