It's an art supply fight to the death! Watch me compare a cheap set of Crayola watercolors, similar to the set I used when I first started to paint, with my brand of choice, Old Holland, which costs 39 times as much. I'll put them through as many tests as I can think of to answer this question: are my fancy little tubes worth it?
Shout out to my sister Emily, who did a similar side-by-side with makeup on her YouTube channel earlier this summer.
Full disclosure: you might recall that Old Holland sent me a free supply of watercolors last year because they like my paintings. They did not request that I involve their product in my videos at all, and I'm not being compensated in any other way. Old Holland has been my brand of choice since 2002, and I'd continue buying them in any event. They are simply my favorite paints and I love them to pieces!
