“... this is an
occupation known as painting, which calls for imagination, and skill of
hand, in order to discovers things not seen, hiding themselves under the
shadow of natural objects, and to fix them with the hand, presenting to
plain sight what does not actually exist.” Leonardo da Vinci
not consist in saying what no one has ever said before, but in saying
exactly what you think yourself.” James Fitz-James Stephen

Beautiful pigments mixed with honey. My favorite pigments!
Recently I'm using Twinrocker
paper, in hot press, heavy art and 0 on the white scale.
It's a gorgeous handmade paper that has just enough texture but
shows pigments beautifully. I'm very impressed with it!
Note: Twinrocker paper sometimes behaves badly with masking fluid,
pulling up in pieces. If this starts to happen, go very slowly with
masking removal. Everything can usually be salvaged. Use Incredible
White Masking - it works well!
Smith, Fine Artists' Materials
Gorgeous watercolor paints under their own name,
very good quality. They also carry Sennelier.
- Cheap Joe's Art Supplies
priced, not cheap, art supplies. Don't order Arches paper from them
since they put a sticker on individual pieces that leaves residual
stickiness. Very frustrating to find out halfway through a painting!
They also carry lighter weight Twinrocker paper. Best round brushes
