Oil on paper study I made of trees, plants and vegetation growing through the concrete and structures in Panjim. Nature finds its way through the city... Also, here the colours are wonderful, tropical and insanely vibrant from the monsoon and storms that happened over the past few months 😍 🌿 makes for many beautiful places to explore on my travels around India and certainly influences the colours of my paintings.
Hey, botanical art lovers! We’re launching the series of posts dedicated to art materials🎨🖌!
As you know, we aim to create a special botanical art community here. Knowing your materials is being a better professional. Sharing our experience is making a change, since manufacturers will hardly ever change anything, if they think their product is gorgeous🙂
So, let’s share our impressions and experience on the materials we use!
Soon you’ll see and read more on colored pencils, watercolor, paper, brushes, mediums, tools etc.
❗️All those posts will be collected in a separate MATERIALS highlights, so that you can easily look for the brand/medium you need there.
‼️What is more, you can contribute to the community art material database! Simply post your review and mention us - we’ll repost the best reviews!
The first review is about the colored pencils - a comparatively young professional art medium. On top of that, it is about the freshly issued Derwent’s Lightfast range. So, let’s read, what @debrapinciotti_fineart thinks on them. Debra is a professional experienced US based artist.⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
Four days being away from my studio made me crazy. So grateful to be back-grateful enough to embrace the winter that is on its way with a quick palette knife study this morning. These little canvas boards make great Christmas cards too. Who should I send this one to?
