About a year ago, I embarked on a journey to get more out of my art supplies...learning the strengths and weaknesses of each medium, how each medium worked on its own and how they work with other mediums. The allure of mixed media is that it allows you to take advantage of the special qualities of each medium and come up with a total that is greater than all its parts. :)
I did end up adding more art supplies to my collection *winks* but it has been an interesting experience that included learning how to draw and paint faces.
I fell hard for watersoluble coloured pencils...particularly those by Caran d'Ache. [The Swiss brand makes excellent products...]
And of course, watercolours... for the transparency and luminosity of colours. *sigh* Who wants to see my watercolour collection? [The palette pictured is my travel kit...*LOL*]
P/s: Happy weekend friends! I'm looking forward to welcoming May with open arms since I've been under the weather for most of April.
