A look behind the scenes: Handmade watercolors from my studio

It is my pleasure to give you an insight into the creative world of my studio. Here, in my small manufactory, I produce handmade watercolors with a lot of love and dedication. The art of making these paints is a process that requires time, patience and a lot of passion - and that's what makes it so special.

I work entirely alone in my studio, which gives me the freedom to control every single step of the manufacturing process and ensure that each batch of my watercolors is of the highest quality. In recent years, the batches I make have become much larger. This means that I now produce between 100 and 500 colors for each paint. It is intensive work, but it fills me with great joy to know that I can support your creative projects.

Especially now, in July, I am already putting a lot of work into preparing for the Christmas season. It may seem early, but making handmade watercolors requires careful planning and a lot of prep work. My goal is to make sure you and your loved ones have plenty of beautiful, handmade colors to choose from for the holidays. The anticipation of seeing your artwork shine during the festive season is what drives me and motivates me to do my best.

In July, I particularly enjoy spending the warm summer days in my studio and letting the inspiration of nature flow into my work. The variety of colors, the splendor of the flowers and the soft tones of the landscapes are reflected in my watercolors and bring the essence of summer directly to your paper. Every color I create carries a piece of this summer magic.

The handmade watercolors from VHaquarell are not just a product, but an expression of my passion for art and creativity. They are the result of hours of careful craftsmanship, from the selection of the finest pigments to the loving packaging. Each set is unique and carries my personal touch to offer you an unparalleled painting experience.

I cordially invite you to discover my handmade watercolors in the VHaquarell online store. Let yourself be inspired and immerse yourself in the world of watercolor art. Use the summer months to unleash your creativity and create unique works of art. Whether for yourself or as a special gift for your loved ones - my colors will enrich your artistic projects and bring you closer to my passion for art.

I look forward to continuing to accompany you on your creative journey and am excited to see the wonderful works of art that you will conjure up with my paints.

My recommendations for July:


Gift idea: Handmade watercolors (metallic colors, honey colors and more)

In a world characterized by mass production and fast-paced consumption, handmade gifts stand out due to their uniqueness and personal touch. Handmade watercolors are one such gift idea that not only makes artists' hearts beat faster, but also conveys a deeper meaning.

Uniqueness and quality

Every handmade watercolor is unique. The careful selection of the best pigments and natural binders results in a color quality that industrial products often do not achieve. These colors are not only vibrant and radiant, but also long-lasting, so that the recipient will enjoy them for a long time.

A personal touch

A gift that has been made with love and care shows the recipient that you have put some thought into it. Handmade watercolors are more than just a practical gift - they are an expression of appreciation and recognition for the recipient's artistic passion.

Creative experience

Handmade watercolors offer a unique creative experience. Using these paints allows the artist to discover and enjoy the special properties and depth of the handmade pigments. It is a gift that not only has material value, but also provides inspiring moments and creative freedom.


In times of increasing environmental awareness, sustainability is an important factor. Handmade watercolors are often produced in small batches and pay attention to environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. This makes them a more environmentally friendly choice compared to mass-produced products, especially when chemicals are not used in preservatives.

Variety and individuality

The variety of handmade watercolors, from bright primary colors to special metallic and shimmer effects, offers something for every taste and style. You can put together an individual set that is perfectly tailored to the preferences and needs of the recipient.

Emotional connection

A gift that encourages and inspires creativity creates a special emotional connection. It shows that you support and appreciate the recipient's artistic ambitions and dreams. Handmade watercolors are therefore a gift that will be remembered for a long time and bring joy again and again.

In my online store you will find a wide selection of handmade watercolors that are ideal as a gift. Discover the beauty and uniqueness of these colors and give your loved ones a very special treat.

PS: There are also gift cards that you can give to your loved ones as a wonderful gift idea.
