The new Albrecht Durer artists’ watercolour marker is the modern definition of watercolour painting: a high quality drawing instrument that supports spontaneous sketching as well as painting in watercolours. The water-based ink is always ready and is excellently usable with water.
Quality is our maxim. So the artists’ watercolour marker stands out because of high pigmentation and high lightfastness. The colours follow the Faber-Castell colour system and are therefore reliably combinable with other artist pencils from Faber-Castell. The versatility of the Albrecht Durer watercolour marker convinces above all on its travels. Whoever likes to capture impressions while on the road will reach for this pen with relish. Two nibs – a brush nib and a fibre-tip – offer the artist flexibility in the personal drawing style. The ink lends drawings and preliminary sketches a high dynamic that is intensified through painting with water. Albrecht Durer artists’ watercolour markers are available in 30 individual colours.
Lighten and Darken Colours
The colours of the Albrecht Durer artists’ watercolour marker can be gradually lightened. The amount of water decides the degree of lightening.
As for darkening a colour, not just black or grey can be used, but also the respective complementary colour.
Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. The layering of complementary colours creates broken or grey colour mixtures.
Complementary colours put next to each other enhance each other’s colour effect. So, for example, orange makes blue shine when placed next to it.
