  • Sennelier Aqua-Mini paint set

    A neat, lightweight little box containing strong colours which flow easily onto my favourite paper (Arches not 140lb). I think the addition of a cool red (alizarin crimson?) instead of the phalo green light would be an improvement as there is little choice of violet/mauve/purple hues; the French Ultramarine Blue and French Vermillion together produce a cool red and the primary yellow and cinereous blue mix to a close match of phal green light, so this colour could be exchanged for another.
    The window in the lid is transparent not white, so the main mixing area is around the rim of the lid.
    Haven't tried Sennelier colours before, but am impressed with the ease of pickup from the half pan and the bright, strong colours.
    Quite good value at the offered price, but I think the RRP is a bit high for an 8 pigment box. Bob Stevens (Friockheim, United Kingdom) on 1 Aug 2013

  • An excellent watercolour - Sennelier Aqua-Mini watercolour set

    The new formula with honey has made this a top class paint. This little tin of eight colours is a good way to try out Senellier's paint. With the new formula I do not mix these paints with any other manufacturer to keep their purity. A Yellow Ochre would have been useful instead of the Thalo Green Light for the English landscape. However, when TGL is mixed with Payne's Grey a beautiful useful grey green towards Terre Verte is made. The French Vermilion is a lovely useful red and Cinerous Blue for skies like a stronger Coeruleum Blue. A little piece of shaped plastic on the lid would make a good mixing palette or one of KB's plastic palettes at 35p to slip in a polythene bag for the artist's sketching bag. Highly recommended.
