Art Supplies

I will be posting artwork later today, but first I wanted to share what arrived this morning.

About 8:15am, FedEx showed up with to boxes of goodies I ordered from Dick Blick Art Supplies. This is my order of supplies, mostly geared towards conventions. I love getting new art supplies. It just makes me that much more excited to work.

In the photo on the left, clockwise, we have a new brush art bin, a travel palette for watercolors, Pitt Brush Pens, Copic Markers, BIG Pitt Brush Pens, pencil lead, and blue Col-Erase pencils.

In the photo on the right, you can't see them all, but we have 26 sheets of Canson Mi-Teintes paper. When I cut those down I will have 52 11" x 17" sheets. As you can tell I have a rainbow of colors to choose from. Good times, good times. :)

More later.

ng new art supplies is also a fave of mine too! Funny, seeing your ccol-erase pencils, I just got three boxes of carmine red, I've been enjoying sketchng in those. So long as they're not for publication (from the non repro reasons)I find that they add a little warmth to inked sketches;-)
Thanks for sharing.

Hey Darren, It's fun getting new toys to play with. I have been using the carmine reds for a while too. All through my sketchbook. I also like the tuscan reds, but have a problem with them from time to time. Like there are sharp shards in the lead itself and it will cut into the paper. The tuscan reds do that and one other I can't remember. Thanks!

That was almost the title of the post, Gary. :)

Gene-"Like there are sharp shards in the lead itself and it will cut into the paper."

You know, that's one of the reasons I peeled away from using regular pencils in favour of propelling pencils, as I found that happening more and more!
I tend to find tht 20045 and 20044 col-erase's to be fine though.
