Ladoga: Modern Classic of Russian Painting
‘Ladoga’ is a series of professional artist’ colours at a reasonable price. They are recommended for professional artists who have to be quite price sensitive when choosing the best type of drawing sets for important works at the best value for money. Pigment cost has much influence on the final price of artist’ colours, and ‘Nevskaya Palitra’ is pleased to offer artists a professional product for an advantageous price. We have developed new recipes and formulas of colours that are imitation versions of cadmium, cobalt and other expensive pigments, and, based on them, created the new ‘Ladoga’ set . The new colours have colours and properties similar to their reference standards.
The earth colours (ochre, sienna, umbra and etc.) are based on natural pigments, which translates into the full colour saturation and depth of colour shades.
‘Ladoga’ artist acrylic colours are combinations of pigments and acrylic dispersion. The colours have quite a dense consistency, due to which they can be used in the pastose painting. The stroke does not spread over time, keeping it’s shape well and texture given by the artist. The colours can imitate aerial watercolour technique if they are well diluted with water.
Having good adhesion, the colours can be used for almost any kind of surface (paper, carton, primed canvas, wood, metal, leather, cement).
