When I was in art school I went with a much loved but ragtag set of hand me down paints, and I used those in a lot of my painting classes and not well! Raised by artists, and always in art class, I was quietly accepting that I was just not good at mixing colours, and I would layer some but mostly use them from the tube or jar. Later as an artist I would look at colleagues who mixed beautiful hues with appreciation resigned to my standard palette. Then as a paint maker I realized I just never had the right palette!!! This is the set, with these colours clean bright mixes happen effortlessly! Happy painting!
