WOLF KAHN personally selected colors for his signature sets - The ABC's of Wolf Kahn painting! Each set (A, B & C) has 12 vibrant colors, with no colors duplicated.
24 STUDIO set is Diane's personal choice of her best 'working' colors.
MOOD FOR MATISSE - The School of Paris was about color. Purples and yellows of Provence, Ultramarine blue complemented by orange, with white added made the perfect grey. This set has pastels with a touch of white or black to soften the primary colors.
FAUVE 1905 - Around 1905 the Fauves or 'Wild Beasts' used color to draw and structure their works. This set uses pure color without white or black to soften. Color is conceived as expression of nature rather than the representation of nature.
COMPLEMENTS PLEASE! - Joseph Albers used color in a structural and expressive way. This set encourages pastel artists to mix your colors as you work. Lay down under-color to create and refine the surface color. Complementaries are the 'Aces of colors'!
WHITE OUT - Off whites provide warm to cool highlights and bring colors forward or back. White is opaque and can provide density or weight to a composition. The need is obvious for landscape painters: clouds, snow or reflections on water.
EARTH AND SHADOWS - These are essential colors to offset brighter colors. Earth and Neutral colors are critical in creating volume and depth in a composition. This set is designed to provide a range of expression for all kinds of imagery.
