Almost like christmas :)

OH! I forgot to show you the referencephoto at PMP! So; here they are: my painting from my earlier post AND the referencephoto. I turned the view the other way. The link to PMP is at the end of this post if you would like to have a look!

AND my delivery a couple of days ago  :) Expensive! 
I have never used white goache before, but now I will try. My white postermanpen dried-up and I thought this might last longer before getting dry. Plus easier to apply.
Some special brushes that could have been useful when  I painted the last paintings with waterscenes. Not easy to lift thin white waterreflection-lines with too thick brushes! Maybe this will fix the problem!? And maybe I can make some beautyful drybrush sunlit watersurface too.  :) But It will probably need some practise first.

My french watercolorbrush is good I think, It holds A LOT of water and color in it, but I needed a smaller one, cause I think my Kolinskis doesn´t hold the sharp shapes anylonger. And I also needed a bigger flatbrush with good quality.
And some large-pans of Winsor Artist watercolor:
Antwerp blue, Raw sienna, Burnt sienna, Raw umber, Burnt umber.
The blue underneath is paper for drawing. Thinking of making a childs portrait for a relative of mine.

Actually, I should go on using my new brushes on a lovely waterscene, don´t you think so?  BUT this is on my workingtable at the moment. I am working on the drawing right now.
This photo is from PMP too.
Isn´t he gorgeous!!

I´m so happy for your visit and I LOVE reading your comments! 
Wellcome back!


  1. Oh, what wonderful new toys to play with! You are going to have so much fun! :)

  2. Love your new watercolors. I tend to buy the tubes and then I feel I am wasting the paint because I throw some of it away. I will try the watercolors you are using. That cheetah is wonderful I can't wait to see if you paint him. Happy PPF
