"I wanted to thank you for letting me be one of the first artists to try your brand new line of professional grade watercolors. I have been painting exclusively in watercolors for my entire professional career which spans over 20 years. I believe these are some of the best watercolors I’ve used. I love their transparency, luminosity, and richness. Each color has a vibrancy like no other. You can tell that these are of the highest quality pigments. Some of the colors that I have never used before, like the Quinacridones, are wonderfully vibrant. The brilliance obtained is quite wonderful. You have developed an extraordinary product." — Jacqueline Gnott

Highly pigmented, good value
from Yucaipa, CA
Comments about Blick Artists' Watercolors:
Compares well with other artist quality paint. More pigment than Sennelier brand, though perhaps less suitable for layering. Excellent value for beginning and intermediate painters. Beware that some pigments used are fugitive (e.g. Indigo), which is fine if you are creating prints from your originals.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the first time that I have tried Dick Blick watercolors.The price is very good. However there seems to be more binderthan in Winsor & Newton. Happy to have tried the DickBlick brand but I feel it is slippery and does not cover as well as the W & N that I have used for over 49 years.
Excellent for beginners!
from Phoenix, AZ
I've only been practicing watercolor for around 6 months and this is the only brand I've tried other than my generic Artist's Loft pan set. I bought the mixing set and have been using it nearly exclusively (I still supplement a few colors from my pan set) for practicing portraits. While the colors aren't super versatile and occasionally get muddy I think with lots of practice this is an excellent set for beginners because it gives you a solid, reasonably-priced foundation for learning color theory and watercolor techniques without wasting your time on lower quality student paints.

Not for professional work
from Sacramento, Ca
I thought I would give Blick wc paints a try based on the price. These water colors are creamy textured and the chroma saturation was nice, but when mixed with water they did not flow. They left blobs of pigment instead of laying down even color. In all fairness, the sepia did not do this. Maybe this problem varies depending on the color. I shall not use them again on my paintings. I am not sure if I will use them up on my students. I hate to frustrate them with inferior products which might cause them to hate painting. I would not recommend these paints.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great paint at a lower price point
By Lily's Naan
from Leesburg, FL
I use my watercolors to teach newbies. The pigment is better in these than student grade, so students get better results. I also use these for my own artwork, and don't even notice a difference compared to name brand artist quality watercolors. Thanks for offering these as an option.

white watercolor "chinese white"
By Kat the painter
it is great for making a color lighter or to ad a tiny highlight. only "problem" is that its a bit thick, but thats with most of any kind of paint, the lighter the thicker. other than that i am very happy
My GO TO Watercolors!
By Carnegie Kate
from Paradise, California
I have enjoyed the watercolor medium for eight years and taught for two years and Blick tube watercolors comprise my basic palette. Affordable, consistent, great pigment intensity and available in most colors a watercolor artist would want. Very solid value.
