Several years ago I did a show of tiny watercolours. Since then I haven't used them much. But now I am feeling pulled again. Maybe it is all the drawing I have been doing. I want to pop bits of colour in.
I got my old tubes of watercolour out from the ancient chest of drawers in the studio. I have a lot of very old (twenty years) art materials. When Jane came to visit, she saw my coloured pencils and called them 'vintage'. That was funny.
I am tired of plopping bits of watercolour onto a white plate. I thought about going to pans, but I have all these old tubes. So I started looking at watercolour palettes. I didn't really want the heavy metal one, I have had some experience of them rusting. The plastic one seemed a bit cheap. So my dear friend Sabine from Still@the Centre ordered one inbetween. A nice light plastic but good quality so it will last.
I am excited to use my new palette.
