Much of the incomparable, world-wide reputation that Holbein enjoys is due to the exceptional quality of their Artist Watercolour. Originally introduced in the early 1920’s and now available in 108 highly concentrated colors, Holbein Artist Watercolour is a European style transparent watercolour which preserves the brush handling qualities inherent in Japanese watercolour techniques.
More finely ground than any other artist watercolour, Holbein Artist Watercolour is produced without ox-gall, animal by-products or other dispersing agents. This affords the user greater control in the dispersal of their pigments, enhances handling qualities and delivers colour of unequaled intensity, purity and reliability for brilliant transparent washes and/or powerful, clean darks.
Holbein Artist Watercolour is available in 15 ml tubes and is specifically designed to rewet instantly and not deteriorate in the tube or on the palette.
Holbein Artist Watercolour is the standard by which all others are measured against.
