Art Spectrum® Spectrum Viridian is a deep semi-transparent emerald green that is on the cooler side of the spectrum.
Slightly muted, Viridian has often been a staple for landscape painters. The name originates from the Latin word for green ‘viridis’.
Viridian was first made in 1838 in Paris by the colourist Binet as a replacement for the dangerous Emerald Green. In accordance with proven traditional methods of production, all Art Spectrum® Artists’ Watercolours are carefully stone milled to enhance the individual brilliance of each selected permanent pigment and to maximise its handling qualities. Successful watercolours depend on selecting the best quality paper, the permanence and brilliance of the pigments and the use of a wide variety of quality brushes.
Available in 10ml tubes. Series 1-4.
We do not recommend using Art Spectrum® Artists’ Watercolours as pans.
