Whew. I’m not feeling well today. It didn’t keep me away from the paints though. Practice, practice, practice. I really never liked these sketches (both done yesterday), and adding paint today didn’t make them any better. But, I don’t care right now; I feel yuck.
On a happier note, I was treated to a Texas Art Supply trip yesterday. Boy-oh-boy, did I have fun! I had heard they had kolinsky sable brushes on clearance, which they did, but I didn’t get one because they didn’t look very good. I’ve been told they should have a nice point on them and these did not, so I passed. BUT! I did get a 9″x12″ pad of Arches Hot Pressed paper, a bottle of W&N masking fluid, and, drumroll please, a 24 color, full pan set of Yarka professional watercolors! And I do love them. They have a very nice color saturation that I often have to fight for in my other set. I can’t wait to play with them some more, when I’m feeling a little better.
