Mostly ok

If you stay at home and paint slowly, tend towards being fussy, with a dozen clean brushes behind each ear, these paints will probably be to your liking. They are very much a matter of method, and if you're the sort that mixes all over the lid and in the paints themselves, naughty, these wont do. And, I've had several colours arrive with the paint already spilling round all sides and beneath the pan in the plastic and cardboard packaging, in other words, they don't like being tipped up and I wouldn't care to travel with them.

Cobalt Teal rewets beautifully and is highly pigmented. There are so many versions of PG50 and it depends entirely on the brand. Cobalt Teal by Daniel Smith leans slightly green with heavy granulation while Schmincke's is the most blue with medium granulation. Cobalt Teal by Roman Szmal is the greenest leaning of the 3 and makes the smoothest washes with minor granulation. They use the same pigment but each has it's own character and charm.

Made with PBk32, this version of Perylene Green is a bit brighter and more yellow than Daniel Smith's Perylene Green, which is made with PBk31. It's a very dusky, moody green that's useful for mixing shadows or can be mixed with a brighter color, like Nickel Azo Yellow, to create dynamic foliage colors.

SUPER easy rewet with a very high tinting strength. Somewhat green-gold in masstone and a bright, almost acid yellow in a wash. Very transparent. Good for glazing. A good mixer, but beware of the yellow stain that can be left behind when lifted.This color (PY150) is used in a LOT of modern convenience color mixes.

This cobalt blue is gorgeous. Slightly cooler/greener than, say, Daniel Smith's French Ultramarine, it positively glows off the paper. The granulation is fantastic. Like every Roman Szmal paint I've tried so far, it has great movement and is a joy to work with.

This is a great perylene violet! It’s such a moody color and it rewets very well, I’m happy I bought it and it’s a staple on my main palette.

Review

A muted, pale alternative to olive brown, this colour is extremely subtle and difficult to rewet even with Roman's characteristically sticky formula. I find myself reaching for this every time I want a washed out olive with a neutral undertone. Once worked in and warmed up, I find the desaturated tone extremely pleasing to the eye but this colour is definitely not for those who prefer intense pigment at first stroke!

Review

I loved this colour but I have found out that the colour chemically changes to yellow , so I wont be using this on any paintings I give as gifts or sell. Only used it inside my art pad and will see what happens. Kimberly Crick researched this colour and advised of this issue.

Review

A stunning cobalt violet lt. Subtle but very effective in mixing and relatively easy to re-wet compared with others. Almost used it up and will buy again.

Review

Highly granulating black, wonderful for mixing with other colours to amp up granulation. More granulating rather than tinting (i.e. if you're looking for a black for mixing, this isn't the most effective at altering colours).

Kendall
 

Review

Very strong, high tinting strength. Need only a tiny amount when using or adding to mixes.

Kendall
 

Review

Beautiful colour perfect for mixes, especially wanting to make colours more 'earthy'. Slightly more yellow-leaning in real life than shown on the screen.

Kendall
 

Review

Dark, rich and saturated perylene green. Great for mixes and it's strong so barely need to use any.

Review

Made with single pigment (PR 102), this paint somehow manages to create a subtle two-tone effect. It's beautifully bloomy in a wet wash and responds to salting technique. Has a very pretty granulation. Rewets easily like all Roman Szmal paints I've tried.

Review

This color is so powerful that it will probably take me a long time to use up one pan! Just touch a wet brush to it and you'll come away with lots of bright color. It's good for glazing because it is both transparent and staining. Good for color mixing, but if you need to lift your mix off the paper, there's a good chance you'll be left with a yellow stain.

Review

This color is not quite like anything else on my palette. It's cooler/greener than other cobalts and is pretty heavily granulating. I often use it with a second warmer blue to create simple skies. Roman Szmal, in general, has become a favorite brand of mine. Their paints rewet easily, move nicely and are mostly single pigment. Some people have complained about the waxed paper sticking to the surface of Roman Szmal paints, but if I pop my new paints in the freezer for about 20 minutes, I don't have much trouble getting the paper off cleanly.

Cobalt Turquoise from Roman Szmal has become one of my favorite paints to work with. The color is a beautiful, muted turquoise that looks great paired with Terra Rosa from M. Graham. Mixing with Daniel Smith’s Pyrrol Scarlet creates a great gray/neutral. It is very easy to rewet and has lovely movement. Highly recommend!

Love the depth and separation of this beautiful paint. Looking forward to using and experimenting more with it. Btw, if you are looking for a nice tin to store your Roman Szmal paints, I use the FineTec : Empty Metal Watercolor Box - I can fit 29 RS full pans in the 12 pan tin - I use blu tack to hold the pans in place and it has 4 nice mixing areas.

This color is beautiful and special in the way blue granulation separates out of the dark violet hue. Love mixing with it.

A lovely strong brown!

A really interesting color with which you can add black granulation to pretty much every color without muddying it up.

A lovely luminous green that is somewhere between yellow, green and brown. Definitely a hue that is hard to mix and wonderfully versatile.

A lovely, kind of pastel yellow. The pan is a bit sticky but rewets nicely and is packaged beautifully with a handpainted wrapper. The price for a full pan is very affordable while maintaining high quality. I will definitely be ordering new colors that I don't have in my collection yet.

A beautifully granulating soft blue. The pans are a bit sticky but rewet beautifully and they are so affordable while maintaining such high quality. It definitely invited me to try some pigments that I hadn't had in my collection before.

Review

I don't usually use convenience greens. I find Sap and Hookers tend to look un-natural and flat. But I have found the Aquarius green much more convincing. It is both subtle and granulating and a far more realistic landscape green.

This is more orange than the burnt sienna and neutralises blues perfectly.

This is a very granulating cobalt that is lovely on its own and also a great mixer producing satisfying muted shades mixed with earth pigments.

Review

This is a favourite yellow of mine and the Aquarius version of it is excellent. It doesn't have the strong brownish cast when applied at full strength that other brands have so makes cleaner, brighter mixes than them and at a good price too.

Pamela
 

Review

As a landscape painter I use lots of earths and this one is amazing. It is a cool shade with none of the orange tones I dislike, is very transparent, granulates gently, lays down evenly and lifts well. I must own at least ten other varieties of Raw Umber which have cost far more and like far less than this one. The pan also rewets easily without scrubbing at it. For painters who wish to emulate the classic style of watercolour this is a perfect shade.
