Sennelier Professional Watercolor Review l'Aquarelle 98 Color Chart Video Demo Swatch

Sennelier is a honey-based watercolor made in France. The l'Aquarelle line is their professional quality watercolor (see La Petite Aquarelle for student grade). This brand has 98 fairly standard common colors, with very little in the way of granulating earths, color separating pigments, pastel or mica modern mixes. It's a good stable brand for basics, but there are a few hidden gems within this brand that I think are worth seeking out.

I recommend trying the single pigment colors called Caput Mortum, Helios Purple and Turquoise Green (a bright beautiful version of Cobalt Teal). They have a couple of pretty, mildly color separating, purple mixtures called Cobalt Violet DEEP, or LIGHT, hue. These colors have a unique appearance not easily replicated by any other brand.
