Richeson handled soft pastels offer luxurious texture in incredibly rich colors and innovative size

Susan Nicholas Gephart: Signature Set-Earth Water Sky
Earth water sky was carefully selected based on my personal planner landscape painting color palette
the rich blues of sky and water are balanced by complementing earth tones, lights and darks. Through
my travels, I have found that these colors work well for painting signs all across the US, but are versatile
enough for studio practice.

Value Spectrum Sets

Discover Richeson’s Value Spectrum sets! The basic color divisions are separated into values, from 1 (darkest darks) to 10 (lightest lights). Instructors will quickly find these sets are essential in transitioning students’ cognitive understanding of values to practical application. Artists working “en plein air” will appreciate having dark, middle and light value sets at the ready, helping to overcome the challenges of differentiating values in sunlight. In the studio, the Value Spectrum sets allow the artist to focus on color temperature transitions because the value matching has already been done.
