It is arguable that the first artistic masterpieces in the world are watercolor cave paintings created at the dawn of human history. Water-based paints have been the medium that has chronicled our existence throughout time. From ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and delicate Asian scrollwork through the Renaissance right up to the Impressionist movement and today's gallery pieces, watercolor has been ever present. Watercolor paint consists of pigment mixed with gum arabic, which is often applied to watercolor paper. Although simple in formula, it is a uniquely challenging and unpredictable medium.


The paint itself is naturally transparent and can be layered one hue on top of another. Results are often unexpected and masters of the art form have learned to use improvisation and spontaneity to make this characteristic an advantage. Watercolor paintings can be loose and luminescent or so tightly composed that they resemble photography. 



 


It is no wonder the innovative spirit of America has embraced watercolors. Since the 18th century, American artists have contributed a vast body of work to the watercolor tradition that is second to none. Grumbacher® shares in this tradition as one of the only paint manufacturers in the world to produce its watercolors in America. The Academy® line of watercolor paint offers value and superior quality to artists of all levels.


Grumbacher Academy Watercolors offer a quality line of 60 color paints at an affordable price. Only finely ground pigments are used in making this smooth, rich paint. Either straight from the tube or when mixed with white, strokes and washes are vibrant and luminescent.

Grumbacher Academy Watercolors is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Davy's Grey Academy watercolour I use this powdered slate pigment since the 1970's as monochromatic watercolour landscapes. It has a greenish cast. Its use is to almost completely wash out areas in skies, water etc. It was first colour a teacher first showed me its secret as monocromatic landscape with the purpose of wiping the colour almost completely out when making a mistake. Wonderful colour when drawing with a brush as quick sketches --value studies before attempting a larger full coloured painting. It has a liveliness of real pigment that the dye with chalk or filler colours just don't have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smooth paint I am still a beginner painter and I have upgraded my quality of paint. This is a wonderful creamy paint. I don't use as much as I did with my cheap paint. Price was good for watercolor paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grumbacher Academy Violet (Thalo Purple) This is the best purple on the market. I've compared it to every other manufacturer's purple that I could find, and it's simply the best. I keep coming back to it. As a watercolorist and a teacher of watercolors I insist that my students use this color and no other. If they want to paint the way I do, (and why else would they take my classes) they have to use the paints that I use. In my paintings I underpaint all my dark values with purple, then glaze over it with other colors. Wet and dry, this particular paint is the most brilliant purple I've tried. When I try to use purples by other manufacturers I simply don't get the same results. I hope Grumbacher never changes its recipe for Thalo Purple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for students I bought a few of these watercolor tubes a few years ago from another art store, and they were very nice. However, the reason I'm giving this product a four star review instead of a five is because these paints are more for student artists and not professionals. So, the quality is not as great as other brands. On the other had they are great for beginners though.
