  1. I love the intense colors of the Grumbachers watercolors. They make your creative works just “POP”!

  2. Paints color my world , brighten it without including the daily ugliness of stress, worries,etc. I need them to breathe life into me, otherwise I’m just another drab painting, meaningless, colorless. ~Debbie Rucker/izacrafty

  3. Oh how wonderful I love when you use those beautiful watercolours and would so love to have some of my very own to use.. I Had never even used watercolours until I saw what a beautiful job you did with them thanks so much for the chance to win some..
    Sandy 🙂

  4. I have started to watercolor since when I found Tracy’s MMM…..a new avenue for me…got one 12 count tray of Grumbacher paints and have gone NUTS using them…..I now have one morning a week from all of the rest of the world, that I devote to painting….I may not be the best artist…..but I don’t care….I paint, relax and then paint some more…….best day of the week ….thank you for the chance to win more paints!!!!!

  5. Oooh, thanks for the chance to win these! They look yummy. My favorite colours would have to be citrusy colours. Lime greens, orange, yellows. But it depends on my mood!

  6. Love the colour range in these paints I have never seen them before, they work really well together and the opacity if that’s the correct word is great. Just watched the show great job. Congratulations as well xx

  7. I have fallen head over heals in LOVE with watercolours because there are so many shades of colour that can be created within a single stroke. The beauty of watercolor is that each color produces it’s own array of uniqueness to the heARTtistic hand within a piece.
    I LOVE living in a world of color and appreciate watercolors with MMM because this is where I learned my first stroke.
    HUGS xoxo

  8. Ooh, that would be awesome. I can;t seem to find these where I live. Had to settle for another brand that turned out to be not so great.

  9. Oooooh Tracey you are such an amazing inspiration and eeekkk I would just love to get my hands on these watercolor paints so I can stop playing with the kids crayola ones. If there isn’t paint in my hair and my nails I am a very depressed lady and watercolor paints are so much fun to play with. Thanks so much for the chance xxxx

When I work on colorful art everyday it lifts my spirits unlike any medicine that doctors can prescribe.

  34. Painting is a way for me to express myself and is a connection that i have with my Dad who passed away 6 months ago. He loved to paint but lost that ability as his Parkinson’s Disease progressed. But he gave me the love of painting.

  35. Well i’ve never used watercolors as an adult, but you make it look like so much fun on your video’s. I do really enjoy acrylics though. Its just relaxing and so stress reducing. Right now my go to color is gold 🙂

  36. I love watercolor and have watched you use these and would love to win them…. some of my inspiration comes from flowers and the daisy has always been a favorite…… thanks for this chance to win

  41. These are beautiful. I’ve always wanted to work with watercolors. I draw and use oils a lot. I hope you have a wonderful birthday. And thanks for the chance to win and try out a new medium for my art.

  42. Colors are my life! Painting with as many bright and shiny colors as I can is my favorite thing to do! Taking the art of henna (which is always brown) and turning it into a brightly multi colored creation is my passion!

  43. What a awesome giveaway, love the brightness these watercolors have!!
    Painting has slways brighten my day!! 🙂

  44. I would LOVE to win these Grumbacher Opaque Watercolors. The possibilities are endless with a good set of paints! And the colours are lovely!

  45. Paints make my world a more beautiful place. every color every hueI love to paint! Its what I do.

  46. I so miss the freedom of mixing and coloring my sketches. The watercolors would be so great. I had a small set when I was in grade school and spent many hours just playing with colors and blending. Happy days!

  47. HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!! I think it’s so awesome that you’re making it a birthday MONTH! : ) Love, love, love your work! These colors make me want to get to work! Would love to win this Grumbacher set. I think I would keep it by my coffee maker so each morning I’m inspired right away!

  48. I just started to use water colors but my local store didn’t have Grumbacher. I also just discovered MMM and am having fun but need some more supplies. Would love to have them!

  49. Happy Birthday!!! I love color in all forms! As I am out and about, I am always looking at the wonderful colors of our earth. Layering colors brings me joy, as I love to see little hints of colors peeking through in my paintings. I’m loving my watercolors…but I have yet to try any opaque ones and these are such beautiful rich colors!!

  50. I started on my creative journey with Grumbacher back in college. The way the colors flowed over the paper was way more exciting than a T square and an HB pencil. I’ll have to show my kids how fun water color can be!

  51. These look wonderful. For the record, I am going on a trip very soon (Seattle//Hawaii//San Diego) and in my head I have been packing my artsy supplies. You are an inspiration. I am thinking that I am going to do what you did. Art journal//pencils and some watercolors . . . .

  52. I remember receiving and using the set of Grumbacher pastel chalk , during my childhood. Oh the stories I would create, on the big slate blackboard our family had. Stories of little critters, their families, and their life depicted underground. I took a drawing class at the local zoo, a turtle was my best effort. Grumbacher supplies always grab my attention, in any art store, and I drool over the opportunity to own this set of water colors. Thanks for the opportunity.

  53. Tracy… I did a small watercolor painting in my journal during your Birthday show … Had a blast and can’t wait to do more. Thanks for the inspiration.

  54. Love watching you paint…will pick up a brush one day I am sure. This set will push me in the right direction for sure. Thanks for the chance

  55. The best part of mixed media is that I get to feed my scrapbooking need, and fuel my desire to have a paint brush in my hands!! Just give me color, any color. It’s all good!!

  56. It would be so wonderful to win. I don’t have these paints for watercolor’s I have crayola. and the other brand that you said was good. can’t remember the name. starts with a P. oh Yea Prang.
    I just love how vibrant your paintings come out.

  57. Grumbacher watercolors are beautiful pure colors. I have been wanting to try watercolors for years. Would love to start with this fantastic set. Color bring life to my projects and brightens my world.

  58. Love them! Love the bright colors,…the blues the yellows! Paints allow me to live in a new world and change my mood everyday that I paint without having to repaint a room or go any further than my studio! I can change my mood just by being lost in the color even if it is only for a few minutes. Paint tells my story or the story without having to use words, because sometimes the words just either aren’t there or they aren’t enough.
    Happy Birthday Month Tracy! Wow! What a year this is going to be! <3

  59. How do paints rock my world? Well, let me tell you, missy. I have two drawers full of all kinds of paint – acrylic, acrylic, and acrylic, but not as many watercolor paints as I would like. Thanks for the chance at the watercolors!!
