An intense, bright primary red, Pyrrole Red is an excellent substitute for toxic Cadmium Reds. This powerful color is great for use in florals, landscapes, illustration, and lettering projects, and it mixes beautifully with other watercolours. Pyrrole and Carmine are both strong primary reds and appear similar, however Pyrrole is less intense when used full strength.

Artist Notes: Combine with Marigold Orange for bright orange-reds, or with Hansa Yellow for beautiful sunset-worthy oranges.

Paint Maker’s Notes: Discovered by accident during the 1970s, this was one of the first Pyrrole pigments to be used by artists. Originally developed for the automotive industry, the informal name for PR 254 is Ferrari Red.
