Finally got a hold on the Peerless Watercolor
and It's a dream to work with
The Peerless Watercolors have been around for more than 100 years and are unique in that they come in highly-pigmented papers which you dilute with water. Yes they come in papers. Yes they are watercolors. Yes it means they are highly transportable!
After stalking youtube and pinterest about this brand I finally decided to purchase mine from ArtWhalePh. I ordered the Small Bonus Pack which gives me 48 very vibrant colors in 2x2 inch squares.
This is the draw of the Peerless brand, because the colors are in paper form you can cut to size the colors you want, paste it on a board then just bring your water-brush and you are good to go!
Also, dont be fooled by the way the papers look. When I first opened my small bonus pack I thought that the final color would look exactly like it did on the pigment paper -- yellows look orange, reds were almost black, blues were so dark you couldnt tell. But when I began swatching them into my "travel palette" the true colors would come out and what bright vibrant ones they were! Additionally I just love the way they named the different hues -- peacock blue, forget-me-not-blue and so much more! Some are even hard to pronounce!
As a final word, I'm very happy with this brand of watercolor. You dont need much pigment, just a tiny dab and it can go a long way in lettering or coloring what you need. I also found out by accident that if you go over pencil lines with this brand you can still erase the pencil afterwards. Something I cant do with Prang and Holbein. This is also especially valuable when working with yellows or light colors where pencil will surely shine through.
A set like what I bought is a bit pricey (at Php1,500) but you also have to understand that something like this will go a long way since you wont be needing that much pigment and there are a lot of colors to choose from. Also, since they're dry until you use them, it makes this brand perfect for traveling and on-the-road art doodling.
