Ordered gouache painting supplies - and dreamed about it last night
Just ordered a small set of Windsor& Newton gouache, a few Escoda white sable brushes (the Robert Simmonds were all out of stock) and a small butcher's tray palette from Blick's. So into this I was literally dreaming about painting in gouache last night. About to mess with my Holbein Acryla gouache in a bit - but it isn't going to allow re-activating dried colors, so won't really work for the all-important blending stages - well, not after about 20 minutes anyway, and I'm not that fast of a painter! And while I was at it I also got a dozen Conte pencils - the Pierre Noire 2b, just like the one I've been drawing with lately. Really dig them!!
