SENNELIER     Gustave Sennelier opened the doors of the Maison Sennelier at 3 Quai Voltaire in 1887. This Parisian landmark faces the Louvre on the Left Bank, just around the corner from the École des Beaux Arts.
Sennelier • The Paints of the Impressionist since 1887
Artists like Cézanne, Gauguin, Monet, Bonnard, Soutine, Picasso, Modigliani, Kandinsky, and Dali made this place a historic rendez-vous. A place where the most celebrated names could find the finest colors available for artists. Sennelier’s expertise in colors and art materials is surpassed only by their passion for them. Sennelier has been a resource for artists since the era of the Impressionists, and that tradition continues today for all customers of the Maison Sennelier.

MaimeriBlu is one of my favorite manufacturers and one of the few who produce some of the finest artist materials available at a reasonable price. In Italy, during 1923, Gianni Maimeri finely ground a variety of pigments and mixed them with refined oils to create his own paints. His choice of palette was developed from the vibrant colors reminiscent of his Mediterranean surroundings. In time, he became known for the quality of his paints and, as custom holds, he passed this knowledge through three generations of sons. Thus, today, you can purchase these remarkable products at an affordable price. Just for you, I have personally selected a palette of colors which I  truly believe you will find delightful. Whatever medium you prefer, you can now select a package which will suit your own needs superbly.
MaimeriBlu paints have always been made by hand. This perfection continues, in order to ensure the highest quality possible and to guarantee that these paint are unadulterated. There are no additives or artificial processes which might compromise the genuineness of this product. MAIMERI still follows the proper procedures to prepare individual paint pans with traditional manual methods and, thus, preserve the purity of formula and composition that creates the fine quality of these watercolours with integrity.

Six Wonderful Colors:
# 112 Permanent Yellow Lemon
# 161 Raw Sienna
# 256 Magenta Red
# 340 Permanent Green Deep
# 391 Ultramarine Light
# 492 Brunt Umber
In designing this palette of 72 colours, preference is given to the pigments which offer the greatest transparency, while creating the highest quality of colour and light fastness possible. Among these, there are 52 pure colours, consisting of a single pigment which is bound with distilled water and a very high quality gum-arabic from The Sudan.

Paintings rendered with clear, translucent watercolour are the result of exceptional colour clarity. These MAIMERIBLU colours, pure, simple and extraordinarily transparent are my preferred choice. Marilynn’s Choice!
