WCMaterialsThis is a bit of a “talky” video.

I don’t paint anything, I just show you supplies and talk about the differences between artist quality vs. student quality and recommend what I’d choose if I was just starting out in watercolours.

I don’t believe that you need to start with best quality materials when you’re just learning.

It can be a bit of a deterrent; when everything you’re using is so expensive, we tend to get more attached to favourable outcomes.

Favourable outcomes are not what learning watercolours is about.

It’s about painting. Period.

Just using the paint and brushes and learning how they flow together.

That’s the most important thing.

Just get started.
 
 

 
 
Quality has it’s place – but just get painting and you can start with as little as $20.

I was kinda digging the Copic markers on the wood pad – so I did a whole pumpkin marker drawing and I’m not hating it.

So today we have a bit of a chat about art and an idea about different types of arting styles by Malcolm Gladwell. I like him.

So I finally got around to testing out the Kizara Wood Pad with some mixed results. I tested graphite, felt tip, brush pen, watercolour and Copic markers.

Today I show everyone my studio and where I work on a daily basis. I also clean out my materials and ask whether it’s garbage or not to giveaway supplies I don’t use anymore? You tell ME.

I talk about schadenfraude, Chris Farley, first followers, dead people and stepping up to help and the people I want to have in my life. It’s a full plate.

Here is a quick, cheap and easy way to paint wet in wet without having to go through the whole rigamarole of “stretching”.

Everyone likes some stained glass – so here’s… dum, dum DAAAH – Pebeo Vitrail! on Mylar. Kicking it like it’s stained glass for realz.

Except it’s not.
