|A variety of watercolors to test...and see.|
Do you ever buy art supplies and then just flat never get around to using them? That would be me! I decided it was time to systematically test the various watercolors that I've purchased and compare the differences between (a) types of products like dry vs. tube; (b) brands; and (c) styles of watercolor(ing) like Chinese Mahjong tiles and glitter watercolors.

|Mahjong tiles give a very soft effect.|
discoveries (for me): the cheap watercolors that I hadn't bothered to use are actually now my favorites; the Mahjong tiles which I purchased because I love the distinct colors actually have a totally different flow; and the watercolors in tubes have the potential for super vibrant colors equivalent to poster paints. The watercolors which had been my favorites have now slipped to the back burner.

|The vibrancy of these tube watercolors is incredible.|
