Man, I bought a TON of art supplies! I'm so happy!!
I bought about 40 tubes of paint, 20 or 30 brushes, and a bunch of other stuff too. Including a nifty paint rack that holds ALL of my paint and spins around so I can grab my paints as needed.
I'm going to be painting off and on for the rest of the night! You can watch me HERE on my webcam!
What FUN! I have my own tendencies to go to wal-mart at midnight and buy everyhting they have in stock ;P
Whatchya paintin? I see a dark background with a light source? and a really cool warped checkerboard (those are FUN!)
Not sure yet, lol. Sometimes when I have new brushes (that will paint straight, clean lines) I start with a good checkerboard, lol. Like in "Horned Fairy"
or "Alice and the Cards
. It's actually the same colour I used in "Horned Fairy" too, I'm not sure if I'll keep it monochromatic or not....
oh Jas! Your stonework is UNREAL! I'd like to see you paint runes if you haven't already! Yours would ROCK beyond beliefe I am sure!
wowo...I will miss that!!!!!!!!
question: how do you take care of your brushes........special water, liquid?????????????
Hehe, nothing special - just tap water!
I'm just careful to make sure I don't let my brushes STAY in water for very long - just for a little cleaning, so they don't lose their shape! One of the worst things for a brush is to leave them overnight in the water - it makes the bristles bend up!
oh yes, i finally broke my habit of leaving the brushes sitting in the water :P my brushes last so much longer now.
HAHA! I'm HORRIBLE with that!
ohh gosh, then my brushes are dead now! I leave them on water most of the time!!!!!! Oops!
Yay for art supplies!!! Oh...I've seen that paint rack at Michael's, it looks so convenenient! I have a cart on wheels that I got at walmart to store my paints, lol.
I love it when I buy new art supplies, it's like Christmas morning. Enjoy!
I hope that one day I make enough from my artwork to drop tons of money on art supplies, I know the arnt cheap, the idea of going out and buying 40 tubes of paint and 40 brushes or so is a dream I would love to experiance.
One day....OH Yes! one day I will have my little art studio with all the supplies I could ever need!
