Hello creative souls ,
Hope you all are doing great!
In today’s Thursday Talks , I’d be reviewing my 36 shades White Nights Watercolors which I recently ordered from sitaramstationers.com. I got so many requests for the swatches and review of the same so I decided to take this as a topic for this Thursday.
What does the brand claim?
These extra-fine artists’ watercolours are manufactured with finely dispersed and lightfast pigments, and all of the colours are easily intermixable. The paint structure also comprises gum Arabic. This results in a quality paint, giving artists full assurance when completing important artwork.
The set comes in beautiful shade range. Be it watercolor landscapes or florals, you are gonna love these for almost all your watercolor artworks. The set comprises of 4 shades of yellow, 2 shades of orange and purple, 7 shades of red and blue, 5 shades of green , 6 shades of brown, a white,black and Payne’s gray. The shades would allow you to paint beautiful realistic paintings as thats only possible through layering of shades and the availability of various shades and tones of one color makes that layering work easier. The swatches along with shade names and number is shared below-
As you can see, for each shade there are 2 swatches. The swatch in the upper box is “wet on wet” and the swatch in the lower box is “wet on dry”. I have lots of favourites from these. Some of them are Golden, yellow,Ruby (my love), Quinacridone Rose, Quinacridone Lilac, violet, bright blue,ultramarine, turquoise blue,Ceruleam blue, emerald green,green,olive, umber,Mars brown,sepia and Payne’s gray.
👩🏻🎨 A set of 36 pans is available for INR 5650.
👩🏻🎨 Each pan consists of 2.5 ml of product
👩🏻🎨 It comes in a really sturdy plastic palette which also has a detachable mixing palette with 12 big compartments for easy mixing of colors.
👩🏻🎨 Works beautifully on 300gsm or above 100% cotton paper. If you want to paint something that won’t have layers and layers of watercolors, even 25% cotton paper would be sufficient.
Reasons to buy-
🔹️ Amazing shade range in a single palette at a price which is still very affordable as compared to other brands having similar quality watercolors.
🔹️Lightfastness- lightfastness is the property that describes how resistant to fading it is when exposed to light.
Out of 36 shades, 30 shades have high lightfastness ,5 shades (yellow ochre,golden,yellow, green,olive green) show medium lightfastness and just 1 shade ,which is is violet, has low lightfastness.
🔹️ All the colors are really vibrant and show up really well making the overall artwork really attractive.
🔹️ Easily available online @www.sitaramstationers.com
🔹️The best part for me is if you run out of your favorite shade, a shade you can’t really do without, these are available as separate pans exclusively @sitaramstationers.
🔹️ This set is also available in a set of 12 shades for INR 1918 and 24 shades for INR 3800, both @www.sitaramstationers.com.
All in all I feel these watercolours are worth every penny and if you are looking for supreme quality watercolors at an affordable price, there’s no better option than these.
