Lascaux Sirius® watercolours

Lascaux Sirius watercolours

The colour palette includes the following hues:

Lascaux Sirius® acrylic colours are of utmost purity and intensity. These five primary colours allow the mixing of more than 78 000 pure and harmonious hues.

Among each other, Lascaux Sirius primary colours are in perfect balance: the purity of the colours is retained even when lightened with Sirius white or darkened with the neutral Sirius black. As a result, more than 78 000 diverse and harmonic hues can be created, and the purity and the chroma of the colours always remain intact. Thus, the Sirius Primary System offers a complete colour range using only five colours. Mixed in equal amounts, the five colours produce a deep, vibrant black.
