ShinHan PWC Watercolours - full 104 colour range.

ShinHan is based in Korea. They have a number of different art materials - oils, acrylics, poster colours, art makers etc - but I'll concentrate on their Extra Fine range of watercolours - the PWC range. They also have a ShinHan range with 30 colours and a student range with 24.

The PWC range originally consisted of 84 colours, with many being single pigment colours. They have added another 20 to the range and I am very grateful that they sent me a dot-card of the full range to paint out.

There is a full colour chart available from their website as a PDF download.

They paint out brightly and rewet beautifully. Many colours are so vibrant that it is like painting with inks. There is not as much granulation in this range as there is in some - which some people will really enjoy.

However they are a few pigments that don't rate as highly as I'd like on the lightfast scales such as many of the reds, which are made with the very fugitive PR83.

I've updated this post with the full paint-outs (November 2018) and will add further comments shortly...
