Terry developed his special colours in watercolour in 2001. He wanted Artists quality watercolour in natural colours which are tricky to mix. Quality is important to Terry, so the paint needed to be lightfast and high in pigment. Terry's range is made here in England.

Bluebell is a vibrant fresh colour ideal for painting bluebells and etherial distant hazes within a painting. It can be added to 'Shadow' to create a cool shadow colour or added to various blues or pinks to vary the bluebell haze effect.
This colour proves very difficult to mix, so having it to hand ready mixed is wonderful.
Pigment - Sodium Alumino, Sulphosilicate,Monazo, Titanium Dioxide. Permanence A Opaque when used at full strength.
Shadow is a wonderful deep purple that creates a simple way to paint shadows and of course can be used to darken other colours, shadows are tricky but try Terrys ready mixed Artists Quality Watercolour Shadow to solve that problem.
Shadow is a non granulating clean transparent colour, beautiful when applied as a thin wash over other colours to achieve the effect of a shadow. The colours underneath show through.
Also wonderful for mixing rich darks, try adding Terry's Midnight Green for a fabulous almost black colour. Add Shadow to the new Permanent Wild Rose to achieve lovely maroons and burgudy colours.
Pigments - Copper Phthalocyanine, Cadmium Sulphosilicate, Monoazo. Permanence A Opaque when used at full strength.
Tarmac can be used for large expanses or foreground are often really difficult to make interesting, many paintings include a road surface or pathway and this colour is ideal for this.
Tarmac granulates when used on rough paper which means it separates slightly showing its distinct pigments helping to create lovely textures, for example on distant hills or rocks, as well as large expanses. There is a hint of blue, purple and pink which all show when the paint granulates.
It also has an opacity which helps give credibility to areas needing form. Mix it with other colours such as Bluebell or Permanent Rose to add depth to a painting.
This is an Artists’ quality watercolour, which comes in a 14 ml tube.
Pigment - Sodium Alumino, Sulphosilicate, Titanium Dioxide, iron Oxide, Dioxazine. Permanence A Opaque.
As a newbe to landscapes, mixing realistic greens was eluding me. Terry's 3 greens give endless greens, and can be further toned down with a little burnt sienna or yellow ochre. A 5 star rating to free up your time to enjoy the adventures of watercolour. Utterly brilliant for "plein air" escapades. Mary Costello (Dublin, Republic Of Ireland) on 4 Jul 2014
I use all of Terry Harrison's greens, but love this Sunlit green which gives a zing to my trees and foliage. A beautiful yellow/green, ready mixed! Nancy Lavender (Halstead, United Kingdom) on 28 Jul 2015
I love this deep rich blue-violet. Though it is called 'Bluebell', it makes a wonderful stunning sky for that in-between time when it's no longer day but not fully night either. Well done, Terry Harrison Catherine Lindley (Stockport, United Kingdom) on 21 Nov 2014
