Old Holland Watercolour - Old Holland Cyan Blue C247
Available in CB
For anyone seriously interested in great water colour these are worth trying. Old Holland have spent a number of years researching the origins of water colour and the ancient formulas of Egypt and China. The aim has been to create a range of colours with lightfast performance and great pigment intensity. They researched, in particular the water colour formulas of the old Chinese masters and as a result have produced a range of 168 colours all of which are claimed to be lightfast. To get much higher pigment levels Old Holland have used an original Chinese binder based on distilled water, bleached gum, arabic crystals, pure glycerine 99.9% with various mixtures of natural sugar syrups, special honey, rabbit skin glue, resin varnish (from roots), seaweed extract and myrrh etc. The resulting colours are stronger than standard water colours while retaining the required transparency for delicate lines. The final benefit for the artist is that the colours require less paint to cover areas. Even if you only purchase one colour, do so and experience the intensity of the colour.
