I ordered a few paints to try as I was new and several others had said they were good. I'm so glad I did, these are the best paints in my arsenal and are my go to paints now. Great pigmentation. Thin enough that you can paint without thinning if you desire. They are, however, very forgiving, so if you thin them, they won't break easily. I can't recommend them enough. I'm currently buying the rest of the line so I have them all.
