Info

Made to the exact same standards and formulas as the best professional artist watercolors available today, Jackson's Artist Watercolors are as good as any leading brand watercolor but at a fraction of the price.

Large chunks of the finest quality Sudanese Kordofan gum arabic are very slowly dissolved in cold water to preserve the gum's maximum binding strength. Honey is then added to give lustre and vivacity to the colors. Carefully selected for their purity and lightfast qualities, the finest pigments are then finely ground and soaked in purified water to allow the colors to develop their maximum splendour. The two mixtures are then blended together and slowly ground into a fine paste. The process is repeated until the pigment particles are dispersed evenly and finely to allow a flawless unity of the watercolor wash. Stringent quality controls follow, resulting in a selection of professional watercolors that are luminous, intense, and a pleasure to use.

Good colour and consistency. Easily rewets in the palette. The problem I have with all of Jackson’s tubes of watercolour is that they leak excessively each time they’re opened - this results in very sticky tubes and subsequent difficulty in closing the tops.

Review

I originally received Jackson's watercolor paint when I purchased the Bronze Frazer box. You have the option of receiving with Jackson's half pans at a fraction of the cost. I thought, why not? After using the Frazer travel box, i found myself primarily reaching for these paints over the Mijello Mission Golds and Danel Smith paints that I also own. I thought this was interesting as these other paints are also good paints. Honestly, I am still not too sure. Might be the way the paint looks on paper, or the way it feels when mixing. Regardless, I decided to buy refills in tubes plus additional colors and the price is affordable. I have enjoyed painting with them and plan to continue to experiment with them. I don't think you will be disappointed by them either! I had these products shipped to Houston, TX. Jackson's takes extra care to package everything to prevent damage.

This is a replacement for a empty Jackson's tube

This is a lovely rich orange which, when picked up with more water on the brush, is a really lovely mellow orange yellow... very good for botanical work as most oranges I've tried are really quite harsh. This colour is a mix of cad yellow and cad orange which i could mix myself but when out and about is always useful to have it ready. Also works well on black watercolour paper.

I added the colour to the Jacksons set of six watercolour tubes as I felt the lack of a cool red. It is a very vivid slightly purple magenta that mixes really well to make a range of colours. I am very pleased with it and the tube has been big enough to add this colour to other palettes that have benefitted from it. Lovely quality and a nice purchase.

This is great, got some really good mixes from it and it's really good for things like dry stone walls etc. Lovely colour.

Review

Nice colour but of course not the original quinacrine gold PO49; it's a hue made from a mix of quinacridone burnt orange PO48 and a yellow, so the tint is not as pure. Still worth having.

An excellent Utramarine.

Although a good hue it is not a strong or yellow as Sennelier's Yellow Ochre Light. However, it is a good colour making a range of subtle greens with blues. I would certainly include this in my palette.

A beautiful essential blue with my favourites, Venetian Red, Yellow Ochre and Ivory Black. They mix well without mud.

Feefo
 

Review

A beautiful earth red. With Cadmium Yellow Light makes a good orange and with blues interesting greys and with Ivory Black a good range browns through to Sepia.

Feefo
 

Review

I love Ivory Black and combines well with yellow for subtle greens and blues for Paynes Grey or Indigo etc.

Because it is average- perhaps I have been spoilt using gouache -designers

Review

I have been a fan of Sennelier watercolours for a number of years. When I discovered Jackson's used honey in their watercolours like Sennelier I thought I would try some. I was pleasantly surprised at the strength of the whole pan of Cadmium Yellow light and its brilliance. What a great mixer with blues for vibrant greens and with the colours I bought without making muddy mixtures.

Stays moist very much like Sennelier. Good strong colour.

Review

The comments which I made about Cadmium Yellow Light apply equally to the Alizarin Crimson, good strong, smooth colour.

Feefo
 

Review

Except that this pan contains plenty of smooth, intense pigment, I am not sufficient of an artist to make an expert comment.

Feefo
 

Review

Increedibly warm and bright red! After a little testing I think it's on par with Sennelier's French Vermillion and Schmincke's Geranium Red, at a much more affordable price.

first time to try Jackson's Artist Watercolour absolutely love in so pigment like i just dip it so soft but the colour came out soo much more than i thought and it so vibrant, if my pan runs out i gonna buy in again for sure

While using W&N Artist's Quality as my basic set, I find Jackson's Raw Sienna and (especially) Raw Umber really natural and strong. They work together beautifully in creating images of nature - not necessarily what I intend to create!

Review

This Cerulean surprised me at first as it leans slightly closer to a pale cobalt blue than the more l turquoise blue shade - but I really like it as a more natural sky colour and blends well in a sky wash with Ultramarine and cobalt blue. It has heavy granulation and flocculation creating interesting textural and separation effects in some colour mixes. I particularly love mixing it with iron oxide based colours for great textural greys / grey-greens, great for painting rock or stone as you can get the flocculation of the blue cerulean particles to resemble lichen if you get the mix right.

I have only tested two colors, quinacridone red orange and paynes grey but both of them are gorgeous, I already own daniel smith paynes grey, which I hate because dries like plastic and shiny, and sennelier which is good but a little dull, this one is superb, really pigmented and more transparent than the others I have, 5 stars, I want more colors now :(

Review

This is a fantastic paint. I compared it with Genuine Carmine and it is incredibly convincing; I made a swatch of each, and when I asked people if they see if they could tell the difference between Carmine and Genuine Carmine, I'd often hear, "Ok, and where's the other one?" and had to explain that the two swatches were actually different paints. Obviously they could not tell the difference. I also tested the lightfastness for about half a year and saw no fading at all, so it is very reliable. I've really fallen in love with this brand and would recommend it without hesitation.

Jacksons paints compete with any professional quality paints that cost a great deal more.

Feefo
 

Review

Jacksons burnt sienna is made from more than one pigment and they separate quickly on the paper. I have found the jacksons watercolours that I have bought to be generally inferior to other makes that I have tried over the years. They should be labelled as STUDENT quality not 'artist'. Can't recommend.

Excellent option if you don't want to be mistaken with painting sky. Even if you add bold color you achieve pure realistic sky color. This was wise decision to launch this product. I wish it will be noticed by beginners and pro.

Naples yellow from Jackson's is more opaque than Holbein's or Daniel smith's. It's a cold pastel yellow.

Review

About what you would expect for this convenience mixture. My painted out colour swatch was shifted somewhat towards the red so giving the paint a slightly more purplish cast than in the online sample.

Courtenay
 

Review

A cool blue which granulates beautifully in mixes. I wasn't sure about the colour at first, but the more I used it the more I liked it.

Irene
 

Review

This is a very useful convenience mix of two primaries. The colour mix is spot on.

Courtenay
 

Review

This colour is a mix of cadmium yellow and two white pigments. You could easily mix your own. The use of PW4 suggests you might want to do your own light fastness testing. In any case you might want to bump this a bit towards brown.

Courtenay
 

Review

This is a splendid, intense orange yellow. My tube was more or orange than the screen colour indicated, at least to my eye. This would make a good secondary yellow for a split primary palette.

Review

I tried this colour out in the 50p 5ml sample pack and it was simply stunning. I really wasn't expecting much because of the comparatively cheap price, but it was easily up to par with (if not better than!) my Winsor and Newton paints. It is incredibly bright and pigmented and flows wonderfully, and doesn't fall out of mix with other colours as my Daniel Smith Ultramarine & French Ultramarine blues have a tendency to do. It also rewets very well which is a 'must' for me as I always decant my paints into pans to dry before use. I have yet to try out any of the other paints in the range but as soon as I need any more I will certainly will, and I can definitely recommend French Ultramarine Blue.

Having recently started experimenting in watercolour, I soon found my expensive 5ml tube of W&N Cobalt blue running down. This amazing colour from Jacksons is a superb and worthy replacement at a very affordable price. Thank you Jacksons!

Review

I am glad to have been introduced to Jackson's Watercolour 21ml tubes and have a growing selection. This one I fear is, although a 'nice colour', not my idea of a Burnt Umber, being far too 'reddy' and pale. On this one occasion the WN version is far better .....sorry !

No problems here, just what you would expect. This now sits in all my palettes ready to make moody skies with french Ultra etc. Go for it!

John Guichard
 

Review

Not quite what you would expect a raw sienna to be but still interesting. It is a slightly redder shade than average and has heavy granulation (probably not milled fine enough but useful if you are aware!). Don't buy this to replace your W&N version but as an individual and lively one.

Review

This is easily the most beautiful cobalt blue I have ever used. At last a real blue that does not lean to violet or green. The watercolour paint is rich and can take dilution. If you want to cover a full imperial with a strong wash of cobalt blue this is the one. I still cannot believe it!Ralph Bendelow
