Testing the Classic 21 Established
Shipped in a steel tin
So the initial factor to say is that the set is contained in just a long lasting, metallic palette which is a reward at this selling price issue. It is a fantastic good quality tin with no sharp edges. The metallic tin incorporates two mixing surfaces and a thumb ring, producing it best for watercolour portray en plein air as well as in the studio. The wells are deep much too so this lowers the danger of cross-colour contamination.
When unboxing your Rosa watercolours I recommend that you keep the pan on the limited aspect among your thumb and index finger and then clear away the paper wrapper. The wrapper is perforated down the short side. You will be remaining with a compact sticker at either stop of the pan which tells you the pigment code, lightfastness ranking and transparency on one end and the colour name and product or service code on the other close. It is seriously helpful to maintain these for when you want to swap a pan.
The colors included in the Traditional 21 established
The Common 21 set contains 12 one pigment colours, 2 granulating colours and 18 colours rated as the greatest lightfastness. The set incorporates a fantastic blend of primaries, secondaries and earth colors including a great and heat variations of colors. There is a colour swatch sheet provided in the established so you have a useful reference when painting.
My favourite colours ended up the two granulating pigments Colbalt Turquoise & Ultramarine and the Quinacridone Gold. The two blues granulated well leaving a lovely texture. The Quinacridone Gold has a heat glow great for glazing around other colours.
The pans are a little bit tacky to the touch and soaked up really speedily. I give my palette a spritz with drinking water right before I get started and for the reason that they are entire pans I can immediately make more than enough blend for a clean. When dry I uncovered the colours re-damp easily and the non-staining colors lifted effectively.
Mixing secondary colors
I then performed close to in my sketchbook mixing some secondary colours. A huge variety of greens can be mixed which is best for landscapes as well as some wonderful oranges and purples.
I also swatched the Rosa colours together with the colours contained in the 36 set of White Knights. Even though there was not an exact match for some of the colours, you can see lots of of the colors are a extremely close match. The Rosa set also contains Quinacridone Gold which is not made by White Knights and is ordinarily only found in far more high-priced watercolour ranges.
Testing moist in wet
I was interested to see how Rosa paints executed soaked in moist. As you can see from the images above the paint dispersed well making some wonderful textural interest. The paints also put together nicely when two colors were being swatched aspect by aspect.
Overall I am impressed by the high-quality of these paints
I can’t wait to attempt out some of the other colours way too (I have my eye on the Coral and Aureoline which is created making use of a non fugitive pigment). The selling price of these paints is also wonderful looking at they have this sort of a substantial pigment ratio. If you are a beginner I would very seriously think about shopping for the established of 12. You will be spending a little additional than other starter kits but you are receiving complete pans and a whole lot of pigment.
If you are a White Knights fan, and I know there are many out there, you will not be dissatisfied with Rosa paints. With the exact same high pigment load, large pan sizing and reduced selling price Rosa are really identical to White Knights.
