:: Field Sunset ::
The Field Sunset collection is a specialty palette handcrafted from natural earth minerals that consist of 6 half size pans of artist-grade, lightfast watercolors in a portable reusable metal tin. Themed from my afternoon walks by the Pacific Ocean with my family. There are open fields on the sea cliffs where wild grasses blow in the wind, and violet petals turn their faces towards the painted sky as the sun unfurls ribbons of garnet and orange as it sets. Oftentimes grey clouds will drift and roll into a thick blanket of fog before the stars appear, and the warm hues of the cliffs at dusk add a soft mood reflected on their reddish brown textured surfaces.
These mineral watercolor paints have an organically beautiful granulation and can be layered from thick to thin. Each pan is hand poured to exacting traditional recipes and techniques in our studio using the highest quality earth pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.
