I ordered these art supplies from DickBlick a few weeks ago and they arrived early last week. I feel like a kid again. I love mail order.
Sadly I would buy all these things locally but they are non-existent here. Square unlined artist quality journals never. Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens… nope. And finally itty bitty stretched canvass you won’t find in Saint John New Brunswick except at Jessica Doyle’s house!
I can finish these three paintings I began. It sucks when you run out of an art supply and it’s not available anywhere close to where you live. I use a combination of India Ink and acrylic on board and Canvass. Over time and through trial and error I’ve developed a way to seal the india ink with varnish without it running. Faber Castell Pens contain India ink FYI.
Naked Milton the Fish above lower right has since been watercolored and has become one of my best selling ACEO mini prints. He’s now available as a VERY limited edition 11×8.5 inch print. The boxes are also done and listed.
I am looking forward to putting pen to board to finish these three paintings. And guess what they are larger than an ACEO!
