Hi, I’m Trupti, Founder of BPA and I have thoughtfully curated these pure-pigment, handmade watercolors for maximum mixing capability and lightfastness to paint a wide range of landscapes.

I have used these combination of colors since 2019 and they’ve allowed me to paint archival landscapes ranging from misty pines to summer skies to winter wonderlands, all of which have sold to collectors around the world.

This is why I specifically recommend this palette with full pans in my Painting Large Watercolors course.

If you’re a passionate landscape painter like me or want to become one, this is the ultimate palette for you.

Each color is rich and saturated with a large tonal range, giving you a creamy load of paint at the slightest touch of the brush. And every color on this palette mixes with the others to give you every landscape color you’ll ever need.
