Happy Mother's Day!
I only meant to get a new drawing pad for my life drawing class but of course there were sales on. So..... I got new brushes. I really did need them as I did not have any smaller bristle brushes and I love them! I was wrecking my synthetic brushes trying to push the paint around for my underpaintings and studies. The syntheic are better suited for detail and finishing work so now I have both which makes my life so much easier. They came with this nifty little brush case for travelling and did I meantion, they were on for 50% off!!! I think I showed tremndous restraint.
I also picked up a larger Masterson palette for storing my paint. I had put this off as I already have 2 boxes but of course they were not the right size for my glass palette so was making due. I also picked up a round hand held palette which fits perfectly into the Masterson box so I can just pop it into the box at the end of a session and put in the freezer until the next day, priceless :)
