Welcome to dickblick
Sennelier is pleased to introduce the newest evolution of its watercolor line.
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.
Additionally, Sennelier has increased the paint's honey content, lending it a smooth consistency and extraordinary luminosity. Honey helps the paint stay wet longer on the palette and makes it easier to reconstitute if it has already cured.
Although Sennelier still grinds each pigment and its medium on a granite surface to obtain extra-fine consistency, the entire Sennelier line has been updated to reflect 21st century advances in pigment composition, resulting in the lightfastness desired by today's painters.
Colors are available in two tube sizes — 10 ml (0.33 oz) and 21 ml (0.71 oz).

For those who prefer moist watercolors, this metal case set contains 12, 10 ml tubes, including one each of Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Deep, Phthalo Blue, Warm Sepia, Lemon Yellow, Sennelier Yellow Light, Sennelier Red, Opera Rose, French Vermilion, Payne's Grey, Phthalo Green Light, and Forest Green.

Comments about Sennelier French Artists' Watercolor Tubes:
These watercolors are interesting in that the colors available are unique. The only downside is that one color "Caput Mortum" doesn't firm up when transferred to a pan. It just stays soft and kind of gel-like. Interesting color, though.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Watercolor love paint
By Art Enthusiast
from Livermore, California
The pigment is so vibrant and applies beautifully!
My favorite brand
Over the last 22 years I have tried pretty much every brand and I keep going back to Sennilier and now appreciate the larger tube value. They give allot of flexibility in and out out of the studio.
Rich colors at a great price
By Bass Mama
from Bad Axe, MI
I purchased a selection of 6 primaries (warms and cools) and Payne's Gray in the 21 mL tubes. I actually used them to fill some full pans that I have in a box and let them dry for easy portability. They hold well in the pans, the colors are rich and smooth and easy to activate after drying in the pans, and I expect that the 21 mL tubes (much better bargain than any other artist's colors in 14-15 mL tubes) will last me quite a while. I also like that the colors dry to a consistent finish, no matter if they're laid full-on or in a diluted wash.
Sennelier is the very best.
from Chilliwack, BC Canada
I use Sennelier watercolours for 95% of my work and it is the very best to work with.1. It refreshens easily after idle for days.2. The colours are vibrant and true to colour. 3. The Sennelier company is willing to discuss a problem and solve it.4. Using honey as a basis will keep the watercolour pigment fresh for a very long time. 5. Sennelier is the only company with a 21 ml tube, best value.

They know what they are doing
from Missoula, MT
This product was recommended by my art teacher. My only regret is that I did not learn of this paint earlier. It is one of the best watercolor paints I have used.
These are perhaps my favorite watecolors - in my top 3 brand
from Dallas, TX
I will confess I am new to watercolor painting - been at it about a year. These aren't mentioned much by authors in books I've studies. I took a shot on one of them as I was trying out all kinds of paints - I went through their tube of Cerulean Blue first (large tube) and I decided to reorder it and added about 5 others. There is something about the quality of this paint - I would not say it is like Qor or that it flows out into the water as fast as some others - that's not it. I think perhaps the colors are richer or take on some different type of quality than other water colors and I enjoy the difference. It would take a watercolorist with experience to explain what that quality is - it is not luminosity or luster - perhaps more earthy? They give texture and a natural look that I do not see in others - I like having them in my arsenal of choices.

I love Sennelier. Vibrant colors and little separation.......unless you use the French ultramarine with other colors, then you have to stir constantly. For the most part, these colors are wonderful, but I would also try others. There are so many wonderful brands now. Paints are a personal thing. What one artist might like, another may not.
My favorite watercolour
By Carlos Ferrer
from Córdoba, Argentina
I can't say it's the best because I didn't try all brands, but so far, it's the best for me between all I tried
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.
