Stewart Jones, the winner of the Hahnemuhle and Dixon Ticonderoga Award, writes:

“I am enjoying painting with my brushes, paint and paper that was given to me as my prize when I won the Award of Distinction at the Central Florida Watercolor Society Annual Exhibit. I have found the Princeton Aqua Elite brushes to be very favorable to work with. I have never had a Kolinsky brush before and I enjoyed the way watercolor worked with these synthetic kolinsky brushes. I painted with MaimeriBlu years ago when first being introduced to this brand by Joe Fettingis. Now with these three colors I received, I can start a collection of this brand again. And I still have a couple tubes left from my workshop with Joe Fettingis. The Saunders Waterford paper is a delight to paint on. I just finished my third painting (see attached) on the watercolor pad and I look forward to my next painting. This paper handles the watercolor as good as; if not better than, any professional brand I have used. Next time I purchase watercolor supplies I will certainly look into these brands when adding to my inventory. I have enjoyed painting with these products and I look forward to producing more paintings with them in the near future. Thank you for the generous support of these prizes for our exhibit. It has meant so much to help me to grow as an artist and to support your products.”
