Rembrandt professional quality watercolor pans, a set of 24. I’d watched a James Gurney video earlier in which he shows you what’s in his super condensed sketch bag, and he had watercolor pans.
I hadn’t been happy with any of my carry methods for the tubes. For one thing, some of them ooze the binding ingredients a bit, and whether they’re in a zip bag or a plastic box they get jostled around. The pans will stay in place! That makes it infinitely easier to find the color you want faster, important when working outside in changing conditions.
You can see that the colors are dark in the pans, and some of them look really close. I’d remembered that from the video. James makes a little paint chart to carry around. I went one further & made an Illustrator file so I could change the order of the pans a bit from shipping, separating the close colors. I’ll make a wash chart to go in the box after. #virgorising
But hey, if you don’t have a job & you get some especially good paint, in teeny-tiny sizes, you be damned careful with it.
So ya… I’ll be trying to sell some art. Help an artist! Buy a painting! I should probably make my new, separate art blog here on WordPress again. I tried to go back to Blogger but it’s too hard to get any traffic at all going there. I’m sure there’s a way to start the blog & then export any posts from here that are art related. We’ll see. For now I’ve got too many other things to do.
All my art is also posted on my Instagram.
