Got a package from Kremer pigmente in Germany today. I have their watercolour box, which is pre-packed with 14 different yummy colours. However, I´ve never managed to get a decent pink or a clear strong purple from it, so I ordered two more pans of paint to see what results I could get.
I haven´t tried mixing them with all the other colours in the box yet (I always do that when I introduce a new colour into a box, it´s a good way to get to know new pigments, methinks), but I played around with these two alone today. As pink and violet they are extremely much better – as in less muddy – than anything I can mix from the box. I quite like them. But the interesting part is of course to start mixing them with the rest of the bunch… Maybe you´ll be seeing some results of that here in the near future.
What you will NOT be seeing here in the near future is more pink eyes… yuck.
