Received my little box of art supplies from Art Snacks this week. Since I’m having a ‘sick day’ weekend―I’m getting better, but still nursing congestion and a wicked cough―I figured I’d play around with it.
Once again, there’s only one color in the box. It’s a matte red acrylic paint. Reminds me of gouache, actually, which I use often. With the paint is a Liquitex ‘freestyle’ brush. I have one of these, only larger. The little one is very cute! They’re sturdy brushes and I’m glad to get another to add to my brush collection.
There’s also a Blackwing pencil. I’m admittedly a pencil fan, so this was nice to get, even if I tend to use Blackwings more for writing. Lastly, there’s a Japanese brush pen that I’ve never heard of before: Kuretake Fudegokochi. It’s nice, but not waterproof, so it was tricky to use with the paint.
So, I made a red tree. It’s not much as it is, but… you know, when I feel better, I might add layers of other things to it later and jazz it up a bit.
I’m going to try another month and then decide if I want to continue. Who wants to bet that December has at least two colors? Probably red and green. 😉
Hope your weekend has been a relaxing one!
