A colorful summer with the handmade watercolors from VHaquarell

Summertime is the perfect season to get inspired by nature and express your creativity. And what could be more fitting than painting with handmade watercolors? These enchanting colors will bring your artwork to life and capture the warm and vibrant atmosphere of summer.

Imagine using gentle brush strokes to capture the sky in a vibrant blue, reflecting the golden rays of the sun on the grass, and making the colorful blooms of summer flowers glow. The versatility of handmade watercolors allows you to capture the vibrant, rich colors of summer in all their hues.

Whether you paint outside in nature or in your cozy studio, painting with handmade watercolors promises a unique experience. The colors mix on the paper to beautiful gradients and create fascinating effects. You can playfully experiment and try new techniques to reflect the vibrant energy of summer in your work.

With the handmade watercolors you can set your personal artistic signature. Each brushstroke tells a story and adds a unique touch to your work. Create artful landscapes, enchanting still lifes or captivating portraits - the possibilities are endless.

Summer is the time to celebrate life in all its colors, and handmade watercolors are your creative companion on this journey. Dive into the world of colors, get inspired by the summer atmosphere and paint your own stories on paper.

So grab your watercolors, a brush and let your creativity run wild. Feel the warm rays of the sun on your skin, listen to the chirping of the birds and paint summer in all its glory. It's time to swing your brush and capture the summer with handmade watercolors. Let your works shine and share the beauty of summer with the world!

Enjoy summer with your passion for art and handmade watercolors. It's the perfect combination to unleash your creativity and paint your personal summer story. Bring summer to life on paper and inspire others with your unique artwork.

New category: color properties

In the new rubik color properties you will learn everything about the special properties of the handmade watercolor paints. An excerpt from the rubric attached, which is about the size and content of the color pots. I wish you much pleasure.

Size and content of the color pots:

The size of the 1/2 color cups is: 1.8 cm * 1.5 cm * 1.0 cm in length * width * height.

The content of a 1/2 color cup is 2 ml. The colors are made in such a way that there is still a hill of color above the color cup, so the complete color content of a 1/2 color cup with a hill is 2.2 ml and more.

The weight varies depending on the color and color collection, the ranges here are between 3g and 8g depending on the color type.

In direct comparison, the handmade watercolor paints on VHaquarell thereby offer between 25-50% more content than industrial paints, since the largest possible 1/2 cells are selected and a color mound is made above the color cup, which requires another two to three more layers of paint after the 1/2 color cup is already filled.

In the following picture you can see a handmade watercolor paint cup from VHaquarell (far left in the picture) in direct comparison with two manufacturers of industrially produced watercolor paints.

Under the link you will find the new section where you can get full information and learn even more about the handmade watercolors:
