Quote:

“Looking at the Savoir-Faire catalog, I realized how many of the Savoir-Faire products I use and love! Sennelier Paints: watercolor, oil, acrylic, and Egg Tempera! Sennelier soft pastels, Lascaux acrylics, and the wonderful Fabriano papers. I have all the Cretacolor versions of pencils and my favorite brushes are in the Isabey and Raphael lines. I am a colorist - I work in all mediums but the thing that is connected across the board is the way I use color for expression. I keep using Savoir-Faire products because they are exceptional in color intensity and quality. I especially like the creamy textures in the oils and acrylics, and the depth of pigment in all their paints. The watercolors are strong and luminous; they flow beautifully and make juicy washes! A color I can’t live without is Chinese Orange. I recently did a painting using three of the Sennelier Naples Yellows, and mixed them with Viridian and Turquoise and Ultramarine for some amazing soft colors.”
