Buy Watercolour Paint
You ask the question why buy watercolour paint? The answer is while the artist can apply the colour, the water ultimately takes the process into its own hands. The watercolour artist soon learns to see water as a friend who must be understood and treated with respect. Neither the water nor the pigment can be completely controlled, and that is the beauty of watercolour.
We experimented with pigment to create colours that blend perfectly when added to water. Finely milled pigments dissolve quickly and flow easily. The pigment size and quality play a strong role in the behaviour of watercolour products, and our pigments are finely milled and blended to achieve optimum results in terms of colour, transparency, tint, and permanency.
While Derivan Watercolours supply the quality pigment you need to create your art, it is up to you to add the necessary time and patience needed to understand and work with water. Continued experimentation with Derivan Watercolours and paper and brushes will bring you to a place where you know the way watercolours interact with other products. Learn to take your time, and let the watercolour and water take theirs.
Derivan Watercolours. Patience and pigment have their rewards.
