Thanks for another thorough review! I especially appreciated knowing about the “bounce” when working on a 2 page spread–I wouldnt have thought about the difference the spine made. Gorgeous art, as always 😁
Yes!!! Thank you for putting this concept into words. Im trying to move from planned layers to pulling hints of edges out of beautiful washes in a more organic way. It. Is. So. Hard. I still have to do at least one ink and wash piece a week to keep myself sane. Thanks for the encouragement.
As someone who owns both DaVinci sets, I can assure you, they get a LOT of use. The Scratchmade palette takes the edge for me because I like having both the PR101 burnt sienna deep and the Phthalo green in my full pan mixers, and really like the large assortment of interesting colors in the bottom row.
I agree–DaVinci paints were the first artist paints I saved up for. I purchased their original mixing tin a few years ago, and have refilled most of the pans several times over. I like that Tonya added some fun and interesting paints into the SJ palette in addition to the mixing heavyweights.
Thanks, Sharon. After rewetting, tube and pan paints are nearly identical with DaVinci paint. Considering the tin alone is a $30 value, $2/half pan and $4/full pan is a great value. The color selection is a lot of fun if you enjoy swatching and playing with color like I do. 🙂🎨🖌️
