LUTEA / Natural dyes – extra fine pigments & watercolours. 

The extra-fine Lutea colours originate from noble plant materials. Our pigments are extracted from plants chosen for their high quality dyes and lightfastness. Each watercolour is subjected to research and development, from the plant production to the grinding of pigments, which are carefully incorporated with first quality binding agents.  

The unique beauty of the colours, their specific characteristics and their use on the painters palette will give you the privilege to rediscover and to work with a range of rare and distinguished organic colours produced with care by the artisan Anne-Sylvie Godeau.
