Famous for featuring cats in her works, Tokyo-based artist and illustrator Yuko Higuchi creates a whimsical world featuring anthropomorphized characters and surreal elements. Her collaboration with Holbein features lovely and intricately designed watercolors, packaging, and specialty limited-edition art materials. This set of 12 watercolors is tucked inside a black metal tin decorated with Higuchi’s characters inside and out.
Holbein's full-range palette of transparent watercolors achieves world-class standards in lightfastness and color saturation, retaining their clean, crisp, brilliant characteristics over long periods of time. Their collection contains many exceptional and brilliant colors that are not found in other watercolor lines. Holbein Artists’ Watercolor is perfect for fine detail work such as lettering and scrolling since it does not contain ox-gall or any other dispersants that inhibit optimum brush handling qualities. The highest grade pigments and Gum Arabic binder, ground on slowly rotating triple-roll mills, ensure highly lightfast and permanent colors with absolute dispersion, making Holbein the perfect choice for discerning watercolor artists who want smooth paint ideal for radiant, transparent washes.
This set features 12 5mL watercolor tubes in these colors: Ivory Black, Viridian Hue, Cobalt Blue Hue, Permanent Green No.1, Permanent Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Chinese White, Crimson Lake, Vermilion Hue, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber and Prussian Blue.
