Welcome to dickblick
Sennelier French Artists' Watercolor Half Pans come in a range of 48 vivacious colors inspired by the original palette of the French Impressionists. Their honey-based formulation offers a smooth consistency as well as extraordinary brilliance, luminosity, and longevity.
Sized to match the paints contained in Sennelier French Artists' Watercolor Sets, these half pans are easy to remove, rearrange, and replace in their cases (sold separately). Pan watercolors also require less setup and cleanup than tube watercolors, which makes them very convenient for the painter on the go.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

I picked up some individual pans to supplement the set I got and brighten up the mixes available in the set with more yellows. Very pleased with the resulting set!

Nice set - with some small changes
I had heard good things about this brand but I noticed the color mixing chart on a blog showed a disproportionate number of dark mixes and the included colors did not have a warm yellow or earth yellow so when I ordered this set, I also added some extra pans. In addition, the box will hold 14 so I added to the palette as well with only one color necessarily removed. In the end, I removed the included purple which is not lightfast anyway and added a deep yellow, raw sienna and Viridian green. I did switch warm sepia for raw umber but the colors are close so that isn't necessary. I found my mixing chart to be much more balanced with these changes! They are very nice to use and I am very pleased with them. The only set I find reaching for more for certain pieces where I want clearer, bright almost luminescent tones is Winsor and Newton professional pans which I picked up about the same time.

I am loving these watercolors. I have used many different brands, and these are wonderful. Great flow and rich vibrant pigments. They are a great value for the quality as well. I would definitely consider these professional grade. Highly recommend.

The most beautiful Watercolors
from Mountain View, Arkansas
These are the most inspirational colors and Sennelier makes a beautiful array of them. Thank the big painter in the sky Dickinson Blick carries them. I have been replenishing colors from a beautiful set Dick Blick sold many years ago - a metal case of 14 colors. Since then I have tweaked the palette thanks to all the choices available. I love the luster from the honey in the paint,and even ramp it up a little with some gum arabic. Enjoy!

I have never bought half pen from other company, so I could not give five star or 'best in its category'. However, with reduced price(on sale right not) and free shipping, I was very satisfied with the purchase. The actual quality of the product is also satisfactory.
from Pasco Wa
There is something very beautiful about these watercolor-a subtle difference that I didn't notice at first until I used another brand of watercolors and then I realized...how much I love this brand over all others! I appreciate the great service and quality of products offered from Blick as well.
I would buy this product again.

It needs a way to show where the colors are when your painting.
from Lansing, MI
I use these watercolors for almost all of my painting projects. They last forever, and the color quality is amazing. Being able to buy individual pans is a great feature. Definitely buy.

I'll be buying more ^ ^
By Angle of Deth
I bought a few extra pans to fill in my palette. It's very easy to just snap them into the case. For reference I did save the color swatch on the pan wrapper and taped it to the plastic swatch guide that protects your pans in the metal case. Worked perfectly. : )
A stunning glimpse into the making of Sennelier L'Aquarelle, Honey Based Artists' Watercolor. Continuing its traditional color palette used by French Impressionist painters, Sennelier has now expanded the Sennelier Artists' Watercolor line to 98 colors to include more rich darks.
