Key guide for matching the flower position to the number for the color

The Quinacridones (which also includes five more Quins in the gold-sienna-orange range of colors) were developed for the automotive industry which needed highly lightfast and durable colors. When the quinacridone pigments are made into artist paints, the watercolors are very transparent, non-granulating and have either Excellent (100+ years) or Very Good (100 years) Lightfastness.

Being very transparent and non-granulating, the Quinacridones finish very smoothly and allow the brightness of the paper to show through their transparency, giving a beautiful glow. Highly re-wettable, these colors are a joy to paint with, and with their exceptional clarity and vivid coloring, they have become favorites for many artists.
