Rembrandt 48 Half Pan Watercolor set

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing new watercolors from Jackson's Art Supplies.  The Rembrandt 48 Half Pan Watercolor set!  I also have some pics of the Rembrandt color chart, that show the pigment info for each color.  I have indicated which colors came in my 48 pan set.  If you have tried these watercolors, I'd love to hear what you think of them.  I can't wait to swatch them all out, and play with them to see how transparent they are...and how well they mix.  I've read that the Viridian is hard to re-wet because it is the real deal, real Viridian.  Apparently most manufacturers boost their Viridian with PG7, and true Viridian has much better lightfastness.

I purchased this set after trying the much more affordable Van Gogh watercolor set, that is Royal Talens student grade line.  I was impressed with how pigmented they were, for student grade paints.

  1. I came across this post looking for some swatches of the 48 set - and it's almost April of 2020. lol.
    I purchased this set from Jackson's yesterday after drooling over it for a few weeks.
    Actually I have been drooling over their tubes as well.
    Many years ago a hobby store was going out of business and had some Rembrandt oils. I never painted in them before as I have been an acrylic painter. I thought with rock bottom prices I could give oils a try.
    Rembrandt had this beautiful brown color, transparent oxide brown. It was gorgeous. I really like Rembrandt. I've used Talens Amsterdam acrylics, but, not the Royal Talens Rembrandt as I could not find in the US and was not aware of Jackson's at the time. Actually, I think the English art shops did not ship to US at the time and the prices were prohibitive.
    I know the Oils are silky smooth and lovely to paint with.
    I am so excited about the watercolors coming in 2 weeks.
    I just began learning watercolors and am a total newbie to this medium, though I love using my watercolor pencils.
    I have a set of W & N colman and don't like it. The pans fall out and the paint is weak. I have a few Mijello and a few Daniel Smith. 5 ml.
    But, to have a nice set of Rembrandts is a dream.

    1. I'm so sorry I missed your comment. I'm so happy this post was helpful for you!

      I hope you love your Rembrandt watercolor set! I added many colors, as right after I purchased this set they released new more modern colors. I love the dusk colors and the special effects paints! But, ahhh...I love most watercolors! ;D

  2. Definitely your art kit is great. Also the fact that you do what you like is great. Not many people can afford to do what they like, because money comes first when choosing a job. Not many people can afford to do what they like in their free time, because they have to engage in self-development in order to earn more money, or they have to do some household chores. There are not many people for whom their favorite business is their hobby. Artists, writers working for services like "do my essay" service (click here in order to understand about what I write), stylists are people who can combine their hobby with their work. Such people can only be envied. If you are also a person who combined work and hobbies, then you are a happy person and you should be happy about this and appreciate this opportunity.
