Introducing QoR Watercolors

Modern Watercolors. The unique formulation of QoR Watercolors accentuates the luminosity and brilliance of pigments even after drying. QoR provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint.

Choose from 83 high-intensity colors, including three Iridescent colors. The addition of QoR Mediums and Grounds can increase gloss, improve flow or wetting and provide different textured surfaces, to expand the creative opportunities in watercolor painting.


While watercolors may be one of the oldest mediums known to artists, there are new things to discover and learn about them every day. Golden endeavors to stay on top of, if not lead, the dialog concerning art conservation, environmental protection, health and safe handling of art materials.

Escoda’s Versatil brushes have arrived!

Escoda Versatil brush holds an impressive point, has an above average snap and has some of the best water retention I've seen on a synthetic brush. Using this brush with watercolor was the highlight of this experience. The brush simply feels strong. Every stroke goes down with deftness. I never felt the point would fray or jitter without my say-so. When leaning on it to get juicy strokes, the snap and responsiveness was really at its best.
