Art Materials

I had the pleasure of browsing around a really good art shop in a part of London I rarely visit. After enjoying the smell of linseed oil for an hour I bought a paint brush and a putty rubber that I've been meaning to get for months.

I saw a very useful sketch book and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick one up. They were piled up near the entrance with a reduced sign above them. They were in various sizes from A3 to pocket size, spiral bound with plain hard board covers containing four types of paper, ten sheets of each type. Smooth cartridge, smooth watercolor, rough watercolor and oil canvas textured paper, brilliant!

  1. An hour well spent.

    Ah, turpentine. I take an art course each semester at a local college. Twice a week upon approaching the Fine Arts builing courtyard, a great pleasure descends upon me when the scent of art supplies hits my nostrils. The sensation is particularly striking on the first day of class after a summer away.
