The Fresh Air Collection, palettes of handmade watercolor paint in new tins

Sorry, this item has sold.

The Fresh Air Collection was inspired by the colors of nature in early summer. This palette is created seasonally in the early summer only, and once it sells out, it will be gone until next year. These palettes contain mineral colors that are non-toxic and lightfast. The colors of the Fresh Air Collection work well together for plein air painting, as this set includes a variety of colors for capturing Mother Nature without requiring a lot of mixing on the palette. Each of the available palettes below are slightly different.

The colors included this palette are:

Black Currant
Brick Red
Lemon Ocher
French Pale Green
Lavender Blue

Buff Titanium

Each pan closes securely and the lids make for nice mixing surfaces. Travel Pans and Small Pans are held in place with a sheet magnet on the bottom of the tin. Traveler palette B and the Small Palette do not come with a swatch card.

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.

Fantastic assortment of unusual colors. Good customer service, good communications plus fast domestic shipping. Thanks!

These paints are fabulous. Lovely colors, rewet easily, and I love having this curated palette. A really nice selection that work well together.

This set from Ruby Mountain paints truly reflects the spiritof summer. They are beautifully presented in a handy, fairly flat metal tin you can stick in your purse. The red, blue, and yellow mix wonderfully to produce many tints and tones of the secondary colors. With 17 wonderful colors, there is a lot of mixing you can do--the possibilities are endless, I really enjoy using them to paint in my garden journal or to sketch in my favorite coffee places.

This is my favorite palette!! The colors are perfect for painting the San Juan islands in summer.
