$40 Off Sennelier Compact Travel Set of 12 Half Pans

Now only $99.95

Sennelier l'Aquarelle is a honey based watercolour which is luminous, brilliant and intense. The addition of honey also makes it a very smooth paint to work with. Another advantage of the addition of honey is that the paint stays wet longer on the palette and makes it easier to reconstitute if it has dried. Whilst using modern pigments with excellent lightfastness Sennelier l'Aquarelle is still made the traditonal French way being slowly ground on granite rollers until the finest possible consistency is reached.
