Do you use watercolours in tube sometimes? I tried it for the first time few weeks ago at the life drawing course, and thought it was great to mix the colours together, and be more spontaneous; especially when working on bigger scale. I like the pans when I’m sketching outdoors, very convenient.
Do you carry this big bow around when you sketch outside?
I don’t know if you’ve run into these or not, but when I was in Kyoto 6 years ago, I found a little art store on the main drag in Gion (before the bridge) that had this lovely set of tiny little sumi-cakes in a nice wooden box by Holbein. I picked it up and I love the little dears to death, but alas hasven’t had any luck finding them here in the states or on-line. If you get a chance to check them out, I highly reccomend them. They are more or less like gouache in that you can use them equally well opaqely and transparently.
You might try ordering from outside the US here:
That Winsor Newton Pocket set is about $20.00 cheaper if you order at Ken Bromleys, any ways I ordered all my wc stuff from them and have never had any problems.
Oh, and they have a set of all three Pentel Aquabrushes for $11.00!!
Keep on Sketchin’
Ciao, dopo tanti anni di navigazione ancora mi stupisco di quello che si può trovare per caso in giro per la rete. Ne gioisco, perchè ogni volta la scoperta mi arricchisce. Ho visto il tuo sito, ti faccio i complimenti per la mano e l’impegno e volevo solo dirti che condivido con te e con tutti gli altri quella sensazione unica di scartare gli acquerelli, ogni volta come la prima volta, vent’anni fa.
