Leningrad are an Extra-fine professional artists quality Watercolour set and are on par with the famous White Nights, In fact: These Leningrad Watercolours are identical to the White Nights, only the difference being they have less choice of colours available and come in a cardboard only packaging which results in a lower price than White Nights.

There is a very good reason for Nevskaya Palitra to still produce Leningrad today. It has been the factory’s best seller for decades, so out of a mark of respect the plant decided to carry on producing them and to still use the original box design.

Leningrad watercolours are a real source of pride to Nevskaya Palitra: ultimate quality following old masters’ traditions. Their exceptional superiority is because Nevskaya Palitra’s watercolours are all liquid poured. Other watercolours are by and large made with a dry compress extrusion process. In addition to pigments the ingredients include gum arabic and honey.

Nevskaya Palitra’s exceptional process protects the integrity of each pigment resulting in semi-moist pans that respond instantly to a wet brush. No wonder these watercolours have been loved and favoured by generations of European artists.

Art Eire recommend these Leningrad Watercolours to experience the highest quality Watercolours at the lowest price possible, They are an absolute must for Artists, professional or amateur. Although the packaging isn’t a work of art, the watercolours are world class.
