The Sierra Morena Set. A handmade watercolor paint set featuring 4 Andalusian ochres


The new Sierra Morena Set features natural earth pigments from the Andalusian region of Spain in four colors. This special set of earth colors is named after one of the main mountain ranges that runs through Spain. Each of the colors is a natural, non-toxic, single-pigment color. Beautifully deep and varying from opaque to translucent, these natural watercolors have a beautiful granulating nature. They mix easily and create a wide variety of skin tones, making this an essential palette for portrait and animal artists. This set is also great for artists who wants a simple palette to add values to sketches. These sets come in a variety of pan sizes, as well as in sets of individual pans without the tins. Each of the pans has a tiny magnet on the bottom so they can be rearranged as the artist prefers. Bottle caps are equivalent in size to generous full pans of paint. Mini caps are about a quarter pan in paint volume.

The colors included in the Sierra Morena set are:
Andalusian Yellow Ochre
Andalusian Red Ochre
Andalusian Brown Ocher
Andalusian Black Earth

Choose from a variety of sizes including:

Bottle caps in a vintage cigar tin with four empty, removable mixing pans in the lid
Bottle caps in a new tin
Mini caps in a new tin

This set is also available as individual pans with magnets but no tin.

If you choose the individual pans and do not want magnets on the bottom, please write that in the "Notes to Seller" section.

Ruby Mountain Paint Company specializes in micro-batch, artisanal watercolors using pigments sourced from around the world. Our paints are always non-toxic, lovingly hand poured into whole pans, half pans, or bottle caps. We make high quality paint and art supplies for all types of artists. Each color is made from pure, artist-grade pigments and our own all natural binder formula, which includes gum arabic, local honey, and a time-honored, clove oil preservative. Each pigment is mulled by hand until it is the proper, luscious consistency. Each pan is poured once, slowly cured, then topped off so that the pans are as full as possible. Your order is packaged mindfully, using eco-friendly packaging and shipped to you from our studio in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
