I have a feeling that a lot of companies make these mediums… possibly even DV. I always ask the knowledgeable staff at my local art store and they always bring out things I’ve never even heard of. Great way to learn! Thanks again!
Thank you, Sandra. I’m really excited about trying this. I’ll look and see if there are other brands also. It would be worth using it just to reuse or repurpose paper — I’ve always wanted to paint on brown grocery bags. ha! 🙂

Well, I’m thrilled because I love Da Vinci Perylene Green and am happy to know that they plan to keep it around. Thanks for the info, Wendy!
Oh all of these cherries are fabulous! I’ve painted cherries also, but mine didn’t look near this lovely as both of yours. What is it about fruits that are so much fun to paint? I agree with Susan, the white discussion is extremely interesting! Who knew whites could be so exciting??? lol!

Charlie, I got your email. Maybe I need to be more careful about checking the ‘notify’ box every time I post a comment. I thought that once we checked it in a thread, we received all replies but maybe not. Thanks for looking into this.
Jill, you’ve asked a hard question and your dilemma is exactly why i almost solely use pans now, but I just snagged a gorgeously humungous porcelain palette on an awesome holiday special, so my studio will soon be moving back into immoveable wells. I’ll still stick to full pans when traveling though.
