Welcome to dickblick
Grumbacher Academy has been the best-selling brand of watercolors in the United States for years. Their palette of 60 colors features traditional ingredients, time-tested formulas, careful manufacturing, and attention to quality.
Academy offers extravagant color at an affordable price. Grumbacher uses only the finest pigments, finely ground and evenly dispersed for producing the vibrant washes and subtle gradations that make watercolor so appealing.
Academy is of such quality that it is often used by professionals. Academy colors that have dried on the palette are easily resoluble with water. This cuts down on waste, and allows artists to make their own semi-moist colors for outdoor painting.
Available in 7.5 ml tubes.

Comments about Grumbacher Academy Artists' Watercolors:
When I ordered the supplies for my Watercolor classes, I was late in getting the order in. But Dick Blick got the materials delivered to the little town I live in, and in record time! Saved my watercolor classes! I was able to practice with the specific materials and be confident and successful with new students.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like the color and a reasonable price.
from St. Louis
For my purposes (Botanical Illustration) this performs as well as the higher priced name brands.
This is a good water color paint for a good price.
By Donald K. Hall Hawaii Art
Unlike Oil paint that the make and materials used other than the pigments is really important, Water Color uses Gum Arabic as the binder as well as most other Water Color paints regardless of the price. Yes some expensive specialty colors are great and do some special things, but. Grumbacher Academy Artists' Watercolors are a work horse with bright stable color with good transparent colors. I have been teaching Water Color painting for almost 20 years and have taught over 5,000 students and the paint has never failed me!

Am new to watercolors so unable to compare Grumbacher watercolor to other watercolors; however, I am really pleased with these paints. I will continue to use Grumbacher because if I'm pleased with a product I see no reason to try something else. Was easy to squeeze from tube. Was easy to mix with another water color. Mixed colors were exactly what I was trying to achieve.

Great assortment to choose from.
Ordering Best with Blick
from Niceville, Florida
Recieving a gift certificate for my birthday, allowed me to order many art supplies that I could use and I also overbought and was able to buy several things I normally wouldn't afford.I also teach a watercolor class and have been painting all my life.There were a few errors in the order and the personnel made good on them.Also when I inquired about a product, the person was very helpful to me and knowledgeable so I knew what to order. Delivery was also very prompt.
Fast delivery and satisfied with watercolors.
Strong colors and easy mixing.
