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 decorated with Higuchi’s characters inside and out. This set of 24 watercolors features color-coded illustrations on each individual tube, gorgeous cover artwork on the exterior and interior of the box, and features the same Artists’ Watercolor quality you come to expect from Holbein.
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 one each of the following colors, in 5mL tubes: Opera, Brilliant Pink, Cadmium Red Purple, Cadmium Red Deep, Permanent Yellow Orange, Permanent Yellow Light, Jaune Brillant #1, Olive Green, Permanent Green #1, Hooker’s Green, Emerald Green, Sap Green, Turquoise Blue, Peacock Blue, Horizon Blue, Royal Blue, Indigo, Lavender, Permanent Violet, Lilac, Yellow Ochre, Yellow Gray, Amber, and Davy’s Gray.
