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.

This is the perfect sap green for my needs
Comments about Grumbacher Academy Artists' Watercolors:
I fell in love with Grumbacher Academy Artists' Sap Green decades ago. It has a duller, less yellow tone that you can use almost directly from the tube for a natural green in foliage. It has an almost waxy feel and the paint doesn't soak in as much as other colors, so it's easy to move (when making veining on a leaf, for example) It's very versatile and I use it a lot with Quin Gold. Just a unique formulation I adore!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Getting used to watercolors and would buy again
By Kate Bishop
from Orange County, CA
I'm getting started with building my collection of watercolor paints, and I highly recommend these paints when beginning with a limited color palette. The colors blend well with others and performs great on their own.
I use this in water color paintings.

Grumbacher never fails to deliver and here's another example. I had a watercolor teacher who was given this as a gift. She said at first, she wasn't sure she'd use this color, then surprisingly, it's become one of her favorites. I can see why. This isn't a color you would normally chose - but once you use it, you find a million excuses to use it again and again.

An "odd" selection for a watercolor class. The colors picked include BLACK & WHITE! The Black is fine if the student wants to do Oriental Calligraphy, and the White goes against one of the main tenents of watercolor which is to utilize the white of the paper rather than apply pigment for the white. I would have preferred to have received an Orange and a Light Green instead.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good beginner watercolor pigment and reasonablely priced
Will continue purchasing while learning watercolor techniques

I would buy some of Grumbacher Artists Watercolors again
from U.P. michigan
The quality was good for the price. I would rather not buy these online again as the colors were not all what I thought they would be.
Best student-grade watercolor without breaking the bank
I have tried 3 other brands of student grade paint and by far this one is my favorite.
