So, Happy New Year! This is my version of confetti, so enjoy. ;)
I get asked a lot about what my favorite paints, papers, (etc) and brands are, so I decided that I would start sharing them via blog post and what better product/brand to start with than Holbein gouache?
WARNING: I AM A TOTAL HOLBEIN FAN GIRL
To say I'm obsessed is an understatement. I have tried so many brands but none have the same quality and color selection as Holbein. Their color selection is DELICIOUS and their packaging just calls my name. Their gouache is unbelievable smooth and velvety, the colors so rich, highly pigmented and vibrant. They offer traditional gouache but also have an incredible line of acrylic gouache that gives the same look and feel of their traditional without being reactivated by water. You can absolutely get by with a mixing set, but it's so fun to have colors like (my favorite) Opera, Luminous Orange and Luminous Red in your tool box.
For the past year or so, these colors below have been giving me life. I have been using them for o much of my work and also see them bleeding over into my home decor, lol. I'd love to hear what your favorite colors are below in the comments!
