I was very pleasantly surprised with the arrival of this set. As with many of the sets I order it sat in the drawer in one of my art collections until I needed something portable. That time came while I was in the hospital waiting for Liver Transplant. It was an invaluable tool on the days when I entertained myself painting small pictures into a watercolor pad on my bed. I was unable to get off the bed and I didn’t have to. A small glass of water at my side and a couple of paper towels allowed me to make some paintings that I still have.
I would recommend this set to the hobbyist, the traveler, the explorer, the naturalist, the beginner and the professional. The colors are well saturated and vibrant. Using the set is instinctive and easy and the color choices will carry you from City to Country and from Ocean to Jungle to Garden and Field to Mountain. Perfect for animal illustration and painting as well due to the scope of color and the vibrancy of the tones!
