The Colour Library is one our cornerstone art supplies. The full sets have 24 amazing watercolour tubes. This listing introduces the jumbo sizes of 5 of our most amazing colours!

Here you can see the large 22ml tubes compared to the 12ml Colour Library tubes :

The 22ml tubes offer almost double the amount of paint as in our regular Colour Library tubes. We are releasing them in my favourite colours first for 2 reasons:

1: these are my favourites!

2: these colours are uniquely useful!

You can order individually or order the full set and we will send you this lovely gold paint tube key! The key makes it easy (and fun) to use every skerrick of paint in the tube. You can even remove the key from one tube and use it on another tube part way.

These 5 gorgeous tubes are more than deliciously pigmented watercolour paints. They have the power to remind us of the intense beauty in the world, and that we can create it ourselves! These tubes of deliciously pigmented watercolour paint to remind us of the intense beauty in the world, and that we can create it ourselves!

Each hue in the Colour Library is named for a wonderful book that has captivated readers through time and the world over.  The way I name colours in Jane Davenport® art supplies is my special way of expressing the love, the thought and playful spirit inherent in each of them!

The challenge to deliver colours truly worthy of such beloved literary classics was one I relished! Take ‘Pride and Prejudice’ for example, as one of my favourite books, I had to capture the highest point of pink possible to match my passion for the characters. As Darcy put it “You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.” And that’s how exactly how I feel about this incredible colour…

I am constantly inspired by the beauty and diversity of these superb colors. 20,000 Leagues holds an ocean’s depth of intense cobolt turquoise. Jules Verne inspired the search for this colour: “The sea is everything… Its breath is pure and healthy… The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite. ”

There’s something truly magical about using a watercolour paint that brings a sense of joy to the creative process. With just a few brushstrokes and a splash of water, colours blend and bleed together in a way that feels almost alive, creating a beautiful, ethereal effect that can capture the imagination and ignite the soul.

“Vision is the art of of seeing things invisible.” Jonathan Swift in Gulliver’s Travels.

‘Little Women’ contains a master quality single pigment. The Quinacradone magenta is a red-based strong tinted pink full of multiple personalties.

Painted Veil is a gorgeous neutral beige that makes for a flexible skin-base. Make it lighter, darker, warmer or cooler!

 

Watercolour paint is truly a joy to use, and whether you’re an experienced artist or just starting out, it’s an inspiring and uplifting medium that can help you to express your creativity and connect with your inner self in a truly beautiful and magical way.

Whether you’re using vibrant, bold colours or soft, muted tones, there’s a sense of lightness and airiness to watercolour that can make any piece feel alive.

So go ahead, pick up your brush and let the joy of the paint in the Colour Library wash over you!

I loved the challenging task of developing these paints! As I was creating the 24 hues in the WaterColour Library, each one grew a personality, its own quirks and charms!  I love discovering more unique qualities every time I paint and falling deeper in love with the possibilities in each tube.

Use the Colour Library to full any paint palette your like! The 12ml in each tube will allow you to fill multiple palettes and to create sprays and watercolour inks to fill your own markers.
They are brilliant in every way!

 

The colours form a gorgeous full-spectrum rainbow!

The 24 colours in the Colour library form a full spectrum of brights, neutrals and shadows.

The hues are a mix of pure, master quality pigments and ‘convenience colours’.

A Convenience colour is a custom blend of pigments that forms a fabulous, useful colour such as ‘Wind in the Willows’ ( an ideal foliage green) and ‘Pygmalion’ (perfection for adding life to a face).

To achieve perfect colour mixes there is a set of cool and warm mixing colours.
The Colour Library is the ideal set to explore the world of mixing. You can go for an incredible journey without leaving your paper.

On the box of each set you will find the colour name, description, permanence, Pigment info and Lightfastness ratings.
