This world famous brand of artists quality watercolour paints has been produced in Russia by the St Petersburg Company since 1934. White Nights are extra fine watercolours, manufactured using the highest grade of the finest pigment particles plus gum arabic and even honey. Three quarters of the paints in this range are made from single pigments and the whole spectrum of colours are strong, easily mixable and lightfast. Previously known as 3K and Yarka water colours these watercolours have a soft consistency that enables the artist to easily lift the colour from the large pan. This is due to the fact they are truly liquid poured, semi moist whole pans.
