Draw a Mouth
Everyday Matters – Draw a mouth:
I had lots of dodgy attempts at this topic. I won’t be showing my duds as suggested by some brave people in the group. Mouths are HARD to get right.
I got some books out of the library yesterday, one is devoted soley to rating different brands/colours for watercolour.
I currently use a VERY dodgy $12 for 15 colours set of watercolour tubes, and I have three Cotmans (second string) Windsor and Newton colours (I’ve checked out the yellow and now know it will fade very badly).
I like being free and easy with my colour, I mix and muddy with abandon, use colour straight from the tube into a ice cube tray with a bit of water, and most of it goes down the drain at the end of the night.
But I’ve now done at least one piece that I would like to keep. This is no longer a ‘paint and chuck’ exercise.
Is it time to invest in some expensive colours?
Does anyone know of an Australian mail order art supply place with a website?
The to do list was working last week, so I’m doing one again for tonight, I’m not going to restrict myselft to art stuff though:
To Do Tonight
Tidy the front part of the house (guests for dinner tommorow)
Touch Footy (like I’d forget LOL)
Start sorting out possible colours for the BIG QUILT.
