Quick sketch/watercolor

There was only one brand of watercolor available in the Netherlands that I hadn’t tried…well, I couldn’t resist, so I kicked off my summer holiday by buying a set of Old Holland tubes…and they rock! They are definitely the very best that I have! No other are this intense and no others work as well once they’re dry on the palette. In other words: I have found MY brand. And they’re Dutch too! (Okay, the name might have revealed that to you, but the English words made me think it was Dutchmen having flown off to the States to produce this paint or something…why are we often so ready to believe the most complicated things?)

Oh, and they have great colors!
