Reeves has nothing to do with the actor Keanu Reeves. I just thought I would get this fact out of the way. Reeves was founded in the UK in 1799. It has been producing fine quality art supplies for more than 200 years. The company produces the classical trio of paints: oil, acrylic and watercolor. Their gift sets are ideal presents for getting young artists started in the right direction. They also produce higher quality materials for the more experienced artist. Reeves also provides drawing pads for each of the paint mediums. Some of the covers come with pictures showing what sort of tools the paper can handle. As far as dry medium is concerned, artists can also be pleased to find in Reeves sketch pencils, colored pencils and pastels.
