|New paint tub and wow look at those library books!|
All of these should help me create some nicer paintings in the future, and the best part theyre free. Gotta love libraries!
Also a new tub for my paints as my old shoe box was breaking apart lol :P
|2 masonite boards, 40 x 60 cm|
|so many painting opportunities...so little time ^^|
|a Canon Pixma printer with a *drum roll*...scanner!|
Richard actually won a gift certificate to a electronics store through his gaming community - and used it to buy me a printer/scanner :O How incredibly sweet!!
Now I can function normally through these events and print my own letterheads etc...such a relief!! Thank you Richard!!
|Golden Artist Open Acrylic paint in Yellow Ochre, Flow Release, and a new synthetic brush|
So I paid attention to what paint was sitting next to them in their pictures and videos and found a common theme: Golden Artist Open Acrylic Paint....
Richard and I did alot of research into these paints and into the company. They are very hard to find in Sweden, with only around 4 locations in the entire country who sell them. We found one in Malmö and went there to have a chat about their products, their benefits and downfalls and what sortve difference it could make in my painting.
Turns out the benefits could be huge with slower drying times and more flexibility with blending.
At the moment I could only get one color (of which I didnt have and did truly want), with a Flow Release liquid to help with blending with my other colors, and a new brush. You can find a whole load of information about their products on their website btw check it out!: http://www.goldenpaints.com/
This brush replaces the watercolor brush I accidently got over a year ago and use ALL the time and have subsequently destroyed ^^
All of these things should help make my show a great one!
Now to finish Swan Girl and finally move onto something else hopefully by the end of this weekend, and all will be perfect :P
Hope you have a great weekend!!
