I got some new art supplies in today! I ordered them from Currys.com - a great supplier if you're Canadian (then you don't have to pay high shipping / customs)...I ordered Thursday I think, and I already have them!
I got some paint colors that I was running low on - or already out of; and then some new ones. By the way, prices were more then half of Micheal's in most cases! I also got some Masonite boards - a cheap way to experiment new techniques on :)
I was using Van Gogh watercolors - but I don't' like their caps so much (they just get mucked up too easily, and then the tubes dry out :( - so I've switched to Windsor & Newton Cotman watercolors; a switch I'm very happy with. It's an eventual switch - since I'm not going to just throw out the other paint.
The other two tubes are acrylic. I work with both Golden and Liquitex paints. It's a matter of both the colour palettes offered by them, and the paint texture that I sometimes want. I can't bring myself to only work with one - so I use both :)
What I'm most excited about though is the crackle paint. It's supposed to give your painting a cracked texture - and I've already have some 'experiment' swatches going. It's emphasized, even by the company, that this product is very unpredictable - so I'm going to want to play with it a lot before I use it seriously on a piece. Nonetheless, I'm still overly excited about it hehe.
Wow this was quite long! I guess I wasn't joking when I said I was excited! hehe
