And here we have all of my ‘from the tube’ blues – at best student grade (Artists Loft & Jack Richeson) watercolors.
Today I expand experiments and start mixing artists grade with the rest of my wc paints — I do love texture and surprises! Luckily. IMG_2744 View
In a too-late effort to get a free dot card from Schmincke; I met a great rep, who despite my tardiness; sent me a surprise package with 3 free samples. (Other manufactures haven’t been so generous; but that’s business I guess.)
Based solely on WC performance – Schmincke has the most # of paints I like (based on extensive YT and blog research); though there are plenty others I like a lot too – Pfeiffer Art Supply has a Tanager Turquoise that ‘shelves’ when dry – great for my big project), and I can not wait to get my hands on Daniel Smith’s Lunar Black – that should work beautifully in some parts, limited, but pop effect – worst case scenario is it is made of ferrosoferric oxide and my hunny the volcanologist/geologist, has access and knowledge – a DIY project?
But now for a couple of artsy-fartsy shots of my experiments. IMG_2729
