The beauties up here are my new watercolors. 24 of them to be more exact. What I never imagined is that the colors were going to be so vibrant, fluid and rich in pigment.
They are called Marie's watercolor and are a product of China. Not the Winsor Newton made in China type, but truly Chinese watercolors.
Some people hate them, some people love them. They are made for rice paper, but I found the colors to be very vibrant, moved easily on Western watercolor paper and a little bit goes a looooooong way. They are transparent and include white for a more opaque effect. They rewet easily and for the price, I have found them to be much better than some of the other options out there :)
On a second note, hubby and I are preparing to leave on vacation in 3 weeks!!!! More info to come :)
