So I'm one of those people who has their birthday a little close to Christmas, (my birthday was actually on the 15th). I recently asked the incredible illustrator Laura Callaghan what watercolours she used because her pieces are always so vibrant and she told me she used Schmincke. They were a brand I had only seen every now an again but I've been getting bored of my own set and wanted something a little more special and with a little more punch.
I was actually lucky enough to receive two sets! One larger set and one that'll be great for any inevitable short backpacking trips.
(for some reason my camera made the colour go a bit strange here) One even came in a beautiful little case. Can't wait to try them out!
