So…. I finally grabbed a new set of watercolours after seeing someone on YouTube recommend a set that seemed in the right price category and overall handily packaged, plus the local art supply store actually carried them.
Tada! My shiny van Gogh watercolor set!
While I am less than impressed with the local art store’s website and their capability to pull their heads out of their backsides when it comes to accepting their own damn gift certificates, I am satisfied with the quality of this set.
I also ordered a few brushes, since the set I got for my birthday so many years ago acts more like a scrabbly pile of sticks instead of anything resembling a supple brush.
So after dabbling with these colors a little, I have to say I am impressed. The colors are very vivid (I even made a messy color chart that I am planning to redo since I screwed the order and.. ehh, I want it to be neater before I show it) and I look forward to trying these out at school and during our plein air workshop.
For the past week or so I’ve also burned some midnight oil while I continued on my personal fanfiction piece for my priest!
