Art Evolve - Colors of Nature Watercolor Review

On December 3, 2013 Ashesela K, wrote a review on Colors of Nature's watercolor paints. The review was unsolicited and derived from a free paint sample card that was sent to her a week or so earlier.

What Ashelea has written and produced with Colors of Nature's natural paints is informative and delightful. She has discovered for herself many of the points Colors of Nature has been striving to show artists since we opened.

Here is an example of some of her observations.

There is no black in the Colors of Nature paint line, but I don't mind that at all.  A great tip I read from many art masters, is to not use black paint, but to make a 'black' from a mixture of other colours.  It really makes the darks in the paintings more realistic and in more harmony with the rest of the picture, since there is very little pure black in nature.  Adding a pure black to your painting can make the black areas look too out of place with the rest of it.  Also, shadows are generally not black, but darkened combinations of colours.
Here is an example of the artwork she created with our sample card.
