🌿 Introducing My 8.5" x 11" Watercolor Swatch Cards

🌿 Template time! These are the 8.5" x 11" (letter sheet) swatch cards I developed for comparing my colored pencils, markers, watercolors, etc.

I've added the files to Patreon as a treat for everyone supporting my work. THANK YOU!



+ print on 8.5x11 paper; I always use the same watercolor paper so I'm comparing "apples to apples" 

+ if you're going to use the swatches for wet media like watercolors, be sure use a printer with water resistant ink; I'm a fan of the Epson WorkForce Pro line for this reason, but laser printers will also work 


+ Van Gogh
12+3 half pans set | 36 half pans set
  • made in the Netherlands by Royal Talens
  • trusted brand
  • more than 90% lightfast
  • vegan

+ Art Whale
48 half pans set | 24 tubes set
  • the pans and tubes are different pigments, and I like both sets
  • NOTE: the tubes need to be used fresh as they will crumble when dried in pans
  • pans come in a high quality tin and are a little "heavier" like White Nights while the tubes are more transparent
  • based on the pigment numbers lightfastness should be pretty solid, but until someone does an independent test I will keep these for my art journals and planners
  • company is based in Florida, and the paints are manufactured in China

Happy painting,
