Split Primaries Sixer (6-color palette)

Split Primaries Sixer (6-color palette)


The split primaries sixer is a watercolor set of warm and cool primaries. Opposite pairs of red, yellow, and blue provide a strong foundation for creating a huge array of clean, saturated colors as well as muted, neutralized tones. This is the essential palette for mixing, providing the core colors you need for a serious chromatic study and a compact ensemble to create any color you can imagine.

This set is ideal for a watercolorist or beginning painter working through color theory and exploring mixing possibilities.
