Joining in again this week with Paint Party Friday.
I have two small works to share this week.
The first is a small watercolour on handmade cotton rag paper.
I also used water based Crayola FineTtip markers for finishing touches.
The second is just a little sketch in coloured pencils
which was done in a bad light while I was watching the television last night.
I may use this as inspiration for a larger mixed media painting.
This last weekend we paid a visit to The Lake District and called
into the Derwent Pencil Museum where I took the opportunity to
pick up one of these from their shop.
(pencils not inc.)
When I am using my coloured pencils I have a habit of accumulating a stock pile
of pencils on my table which sometimes end up rolling off onto the floor.
This is something that you don't want as you can end up damaging your pencils
by breaking the core inside the wood casing.
This Pencil Buddy is a quick and easy way to store your pencils while you work and
you can see how it's unusual design works over on The Art Gear Guide.
A great place to check out great reviews on lots of art products.
I also picked up this 'retro' pencil case. The pencil was your ticket into the museum.
As a bonus, when you made a purchase you also got a complimentary box
containing two Derwent Graphik pens.
I was so pleased as I was in need of a fine liner pen and the
Graphik Line Painter is a great discovery. They come in lots of colours
and are now on my long list of must haves.
Another thing on my list now is a circle punch after using this circle cutter
to make some circles from some of my painted papers
I particularly like these cut from baking parchment.
Thanks for stopping by.
