    Thanks Sandra, are the zensations pens waterproof? I like to do the color and then do the pen lines, it helps me work looser.

    Thanks Alice, I thought I posted in art supply reviews, I’m not sure. I was asking about it for pen n wash work in watercolor. Like Urban sketching.

    1. Hi, I love Daniel Smith watercolors. He has the most beautiful colors! And I love the way they paint. Second choice is probably  qu o r. I love the stuff. I love the flow, the colors, the way it handles, everything about it! I know it has mixed reviews but it is wonderful as far as I am concerned and the price isn’t any worse than anyone else’s in my opinion. I really like M9 Graham also, because it’s always ready to go. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been setting and drying… It’s always ready to go with a touch of a wet brush. I’m not having any problems with bugs in it, which might be surprising in North Carolina. I love Winsor Newton too, but good grief, the price point on that one is pretty much outside my budget, I’ve bought about 10 of them when they go on sale one or two at a time. So there’s my paint supplies. And a few cheap Brands to play with, that I bought when I started out. I love Superior brand watercolors that came from overseas, they have beautiful colors but they do tend to dry out in the palette quickly and I can’t find out what the fade is on them so I painted something and stuck it in my Southern window to find out. That’s a lot of paint, but I wanted to try a few. And now I know what my favorites are at least so far. I don’t know much about brushes I need a suggestion or two please about brushes. What brush do you like and why? I’ve got a Black Velvet inch and a half for big washes and I do like that… I’ve got some red Sable brushes from overseas at the jury is still out on those and I’ve got a couple of Robert Simmons that I like. I even got some Polar Flow brushes from Jerry’s that seem to be pretty good. So there it is! Too much paint but I’ve had a good time with it even though the experts say not to try a whole lot of different paints at once, lol.
