Recently, Colors of Nature had their paint reviewed by a popular art blogger by the name of Robyn Sinclair. Colors of Nature approached Robyn in order to receive this review but had no input other than delivering the paint to her location in Italy.

Her review is as follows. To read more of what Robyn has to offer please visit her site at: Have Dog, Will Travel.

"I've just had the pleasure of reviewing an intriguing new range of watercolours.  Intriguing because they are vegan - no animal products.

The palette is quite unusual in that it's very organic ... Colors of Nature as they are labeled by the Canadian manufacturer.  There are lots of Siennas and umbers.  The brightest pigment is the Ultramarine and there is a good Chromium Green.  This is a palette that is a natural for landscapes and probably portraits as the pigments dilute down to very soft washes.  Good granulation and a beautiful range of greys is achievable.  I'm missing a clear bright red.  The Real Red is very much an Indian Red.  This palette is certainly tailor made for Tuscan landscapes and architecture.

The paints come in little pots and are very reasonably priced.  Good luck to Colors of Nature."
