August 11, 2017


I have been trying to figure out if I want to work in watercolours, and if so...which of my watercolours. As I was trying out one set I remembered I actually had tubes of paint somewhere..and even a palette! Today I put the two together to see if that is a way that will work for me. I did a test sheet and am not I'm not sure about it...I felt like the colours might not be as saturated as I'd like. I don't know if it was my technique, the paint, or maybe that they hadn't yet completely dried from the tube. I'm excited to make it work though, so I'm going to keep on working it.


A very long and extremely hot day. Doctor's and then groceries. Oi. Too much! I think the secret syrup High Priestess agrees. That was too much Suzie. Oh and I did a photoshoot for Reg AND made dinner. Tomorrow's going to hurt.

Good for you for getting into test mode with your water colour paints Shannon and figuring out which ones you want to use!

Those Tarot carts are amazing Suzie, I wonder what advice a High Priestess of Syrup would give. Sounds like a very busy day, I hope the next one was a bit lighter for you.

Testing the paint was fun, although oddly today I couldn't find the test sheet (this photo helped remind me it was taped to a board!!).
