The product itself is very nice. The colors are highly pigmented and the water brush was a nice touch. The paper held up well to the application of the paints. My only complaint would be the choice of artwork for some of the postcards. I liked almost all of the artworks and the mix of art styles however, I did not like the ones that had a overwhelming Christian iconography feel, one is literally the crucifixion. Other than that everything else was great.
I love how easy it is to use these palettes, esp on the go. I was able to complete Inktober this year for the first time after about 4 years of attempting. They last soooo long too.
Allow me to start my review by saying the paints themselves are great, highly recommended on that front. However, I was completely let down by the prompt artwork included in this set. The prompt artwork by the three female artists were great- lots of varied images with nice sized spaces to paint with lots of colors. You can really see the possibilities (remember, this is billed as a "beginner's set") The prompt artwork by the other three artists? I have no idea who thought it would be a good idea to include those in this set. One features an extremely minimalist styles that's quite frankly kind of boring, while the other two sets have very filled-in, textured background with lots of tiny spaces I'm not sure a beginner would even know what to do with. Two of them have some sort of OC (presumably) self-insert character in almost all the sets' images, which gets repetitive. And the third is a complete set of explicitly Christian artwork. Not sure why anyone thought it would be a good idea to devote 1/6 of the artwork to explicitly Christian imagery without at least a head's up to potential customers, but it was a poor choice. I definitely can recommend Viviva's paints but do not recommend this Inktober postcard set unless you're comfortable with everything I described above. If I'd seen all the artwork ahead of time, I never would have bought this because half the postcards are useless to me.
