A Great Day for Play...

Its snowy here....and icy....which means a no school day, and for me....a day of playing pleasure!!!
This is my Cretacolor Watermedia set....and Good Golly Miss Molly, this is serious play!!!!! There are aquabriques (watercolors), aquastics (watercolor crayons), and watercolor pencils in this kit...just to name a few of the things....as I said....Good Golly Miss Molly!!


I did the watermedia demo at Jerrys on Sunday, and I just had the best time. Art stores for me are inspiring anyway, and to just be there, playing around for hours is just a tiny slice of heaven for me!!!

I wish that Jerrysartarama.com had insta shipping...where I could point, click, and...instantly products would appear at my front door..... because I just discovered two of my new FAVORITE colors!!!
Sennelier watercolors are just fantastic.....and man, oh man, did they just swoon me in with these colors... Brown Pink....I know, sounds like a strange color combination....but GOOD GOLLY, its beautiful!!!! And, Neutral Tint... I have been mixing like crazy for a few hours now just to see what different colors I can come up with....I'm in LOVE!!!
I hope you have the best day ever....I'll be playing!!
Until next time,
Ophelia
