This demonstration will introduce Holbein Artist Watercolour and Mediums as well as Holbein's innovative Designer and Acryla Gouache. Holbein’s world renowned watercolours are available in an extensive palette of 108 highly concentrated colours. We will discuss what makes them the preferred choice to watercolourists worldwide and what distinguishes Holbein’s Watercolour from other watercolour lines. Holbein’s 6 Watercolour Mediums can be used with watercolours to create interesting effects and enhance the properties of watercolours. We will also discuss gouache and the difference between Holbein’s traditional Designer and Acryla Gouache.
All participants will receive Holbein, Strathmore Artist Paper and General Pencil samples as well as literature to take home. One lucky attendee will also take home a door prize with a retail value of approximately $100!
