Daler Rowney Artists' Water Colour is characterised by its rich free-flowing colour,which leaves no hard lines at the edge of washes. Its unparalleled performance is a product of precise formulations, based on the suspension of the very finest quality pigments in an aqueous solution of gum arabic.The formula for each colour varies according to the nature and behaviour of the pigment. Only the best pigments, regardless of cost, are used in the manufacture of Arists Water.
I love the colours, it is very hard to choose between W&N and DR. I normally go for what is on special offer. Vanessa Enos (Kirkcudbright, United Kingdom) on 12 Aug 2012
I absolutely adore this colour which is actually genuine Cobalt Violet Light, so the puzzle is why call it Magenta?
It is nothing like Magenta, and it is pretty obvious to most artists what it is; Cobalt V.L, so why not call it that? I would like a comment if poss' from KB as a matter of interest.
Anyway I am not complaining as it is about three quid cheaper than other manufacturers Cobalt V.L. and no difference! David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 5 Aug 2013
Having used daler rowney paints, I find them to be excellent quality and good value for money. Thomas Clough (Wallsend Tyne Wear) on 30 Apr 2007
