The newest addition to our paint line, Opus Essential Watercolours offer intense permanent pigments that have the highest tinting strength and pigment concentration available, at an outstanding value.

Formulated to meet professional quality standards, our watercolours are made in small batches in North America and feature high concentrations of permanent, intense, and reliable colour. Lightfast and finely-milled pigments allow you to paint with confidence, knowing you'll achieve the vibrancy and permanence with every stroke.

These watercolours are perfect both for painting in the studio and out on plein air adventures. They move across the page beautifully with a brush and make a welcome addition to your palette, mixing beautifully with other brands of watercolour.

Very rich colour!
Greg P.
I love perylene pigments because of their richness, and this perylene maroon does not disappoint! Ive had the Holbein watercolours perylene maroon (PM) for awhile now and wanted to compare both of these since they are both made from the same pigment PR179. The Holbein PM is more of a blood red, where the Opus PM is more of a purple red, so now I have two PM pigments which suits me fine! I have been looking for a purple red pigment that is not opaque, so now I can die happy! Kidding! So if you are looking for a strong deep red, give this a try!
