Artist Watercolors

Modern Watercolors is a result of the unique formulation of QoR - accentuating the luminosity and brilliance of pigments even after they dry. QoR provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint. Used in combination with QoR Mediums and Grounds artists can increase gloss, improve flow or wetting and provide different textured surfaces, to for greater control and creativity.
