Welcome to dickblick
Artist and master paintmaker Art Graham put many decades of experience at other companies behind him and started his own company based on his own vision and his own values. What a magnificent addition to the professional artist's palette!
M. Graham Watercolors are manufactured in small batches with pure honey, gum arabic, glycerine, and the finest pigments available. Each color's formula is individually developed and crafted to bring out the unique character of the pigment.
Each color in this small watercolor line is intensely pigmented, and every color is based on a single pigment, excepting a few convenience mixtures of historic colors. Best of all, each transparent color has a counterpart in the M. Graham Gouache line, perfect for adding detail and areas of opaque color.
Colors made with honey do not dry up in the tube or on the palette, and they always dilute easily, often after months or years of disuse. Honey has been used extensively throughout the history of art as an ingredient in waterbased colors.
This set contains five 0.5 oz (15 ml) tubes of Artists' Watercolors, including Ultramarine Blue, Sap Green, Azo Yellow, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, and Burnt Sienna.
Embark on your own Blue Period with this special set containing 0.5 oz (15 ml) tubes of Cobalt Violet, Cobalt Blue, Cobalt Teal, Cobalt Green, and Cerulean Blue Deep.
This set contains five 0.5 oz (15 ml) tubes of Artists' Watercolors, including Quinacridone Red, Quinacridone Rose, Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Rust, and Nickel Quinacridone.

Comments about M. Graham Artists' Watercolors:
If the unused paints in the wells remain soft as advertised, I will be glad to award a 5 star. Haven't had them long enough to do that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really like these paints
from Youngsville, NC
The paints dissolve at the touch of the wetBrush. I wish they offered more colors.
Great for washes and layering. Glides on smooth.
from Sierra Vista, AZ
M Graham watercolors have an even texture for smooth washes and fine detail. Beautiful color selection too.

Good quality colors, highly pigmented and workable.
I like color and tone very much.

I'll show these color at my watercolor class soon.
Rich, moist colors
from Pahoa, Hawaii
I really like that the paints stay moist longer in the palette than my W & N and Daniel Smith watercolors (which are both great watercolors as well). The M. Graham colors are rich, especially their Ultramarine Violet Deep which is by far the BEST purple watercolor I've ever tried, much better than any dioxazine purple.

I like them.
I teach watercolor.
Wonderful next step for student
By Student Watercolorist
from New Haven, CT
As a student I wanted to move beyond watercolors in pans, but was pretty intimidated by the prices for the brands my teacher recommended. The comments on these compared them favorably to the other brands, so I decided to give them a try (the Basic set). While I can't compare them to other brands, since I haven't tried others, they are great colors, blend well, dry well on the paper but stay moist on the palette. I've not encountered the stickiness mentioned in some of the comments. I will be ordering more.

First time user
By Aunt Diana

Dick Blick is the best, period. Graham watercolor paints are new to me but I absolutely LOVE them. I have only three of their colors but I plan to get more. They have a depth and richness that not all colors have. Thank you Dick Blick for bringing these paints to me.
