Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set! If you arrived here from the talented Nicole Picadura blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!
This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.
The set contains
36 Artist Grade Watercolor Half-Pans
Take a look at my Watercolor Traveler’s Notebook:
I recently took a vacation with my daughter to Cuba and it was amazing. The country is a must see. Although the infrastructure is on the decline, you can still see the beauty in the country. We had a blast and learned a lot.
I used the watercolor pan to add color to my pages that would match the colors in the photos.
I love how the watercolors mix and move across the paper. The interesting thing is, I used linen paper and it did well with the watercolors. I was surprised. The colors are vibrant and smooth.
Let’s take a look inside:
The left photo is in Plaza de la Revolucion. The faces on the building are of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, who are two important deceased heroes of the Cuban Revolution.
The right photo is of the port of Havana. So pretty!
Taxi anyone!! LOL, I thought this taxi was the cutest thing ever. Three people in the back and the driver in the front. All aboard.
The photo on the left are locals waiting on the bus to come.
the photo on the right is my daughter walking in town.
The photo on the left is a photo of a couple of houses downtown.
The photo on the right is a photo of a women and her children walking down the street.
Both photos were taken from the sky- Hello Havana!
I used different color watercolors on all of these pages. Perfect way to showcase all of the photos.

It’s the last place on my list of places to go, but it looks like you had a wonderful trip. I like the way the w/c creates a unifying element through your book of memories. (I should have done something like this years ago; maybe I’d actually remember some of my memories better!!!) Thank you.
Great way to use the watercolors in your book.
What a fun trip! I adore the way that you painted the pages before adding the photos. Beautiful job. Makes me want to get out some of my old photos and give it a whirl. TFS!
What a wonderful project!

Oh Cuba, how I hope to visit someday! I am obsessed with travel mini-books so I am totally in love with yours! You have inspired me to use watercolors on my next book. Thanks!
What a beautiful keepsake from your trip.
Love this Kymona. Loved seeing your pics. Looks like you and your daughter had fun. We are going to Cuba next year. My husband & I have never been there but our son & DIL have many times and love it. The taxi made me laugh as last year when my son & DIL went, their taxi was a horse and buggy! They actually were run off the road into a ditch and the police were called. LOL THEY ARE STILL LAUGHING ABOUT IT!
I love the watercolour set! The colours are so vibrant yet subtle. I would love to travel more and create a similar journal for all the places I visit! What a memorable keepsake to flip through on a rainy day! Thanks for sharing!
