Dear readers,


Today an other art journal day. So nice still to paint totally unpretentious. I am trying out now all kinds of colours that I don’t use often. Such as manganese blue, and cadmium orange. Also using the Golden Acrylic Medium to make the non-fluid paints more fluid. So nice to do.

I am amazed what a difference it makes to work with high quality paints. When I paint small it absolutely is worth it. But it must be very expensive to work on a big scale…

    Thanks Dotty! Indeed: it fills me with joy too!

    Simone, your art journal is so joy-filled. Well, maybe not, since I cannot make that assumption! What I mean to say is that *I* am joy-filled each time I see a new page in your journal : )

    Love that you are experimenting with new colors and paints, and that you’ve found this inexpensive way to do so.
