Made with lots of passion and even more pigment

Hi! My name is Laurens, I’m a father of twin girls and paint maker from the Netherlands.
I started making watercolor paint almost two years ago and I've completely fallen in love with it while working with so many great and unique pigments! I've now quit my job as an Art Teacher to make Dirty Blue my full time job! Giving me more time to create more colors, custom orders and think of new awesome projects to work on

I'm trying to use all my creativity into every new product Dirty Blue releases. Making it a unique line of products!

With Dirty Blue, I strive to offer the best possible artisanal experience which I try to realize by using the finest traditional materials and techniques combined with a contemporary touch. This comes back in my own paints, the designs I print for my original watercolor pans and supplies. Also in the brushes from DaVinci and paper from Hahnemühle I offer, based on the same vision and carefully picked by myself. Each element harmoniously compliments the other, giving the artist and the art the attention to detail they deserve.

By working together with other artists with their own expertise and specialized brands, I’m able to offer products that I wouldn’t be able to make myself that help strengthen my vision. Though my watercolor paints are not vegan (locally sourced honey is used), the brushes and paper are vegan and completely animal friendly and cruelty free!

    For my artwork, I started making my own watercolor paint in 2017. As a teacher I've taught some of my students over the years too. I started selling my own paints this year and while doing so, Dirty Blue Shop was a reality!
