Day 7 Thing A Day
Travel kit contents, palette extra
I was babysitting today so figured I could take a few supplies and paint while the baby was sleeping. I keep a little travel kit handy for just such times - some water color tubes, scissors, tape, glue, a compass, various brushes, pencils, sharpener - and I took along 3 bottles of acrylic paint: charcoal brown, gray lavender, and black. I packed a palette and my handy eye dropper bottle. But I forgot paper. However, I found some blank ACEO cards in the kit. (That acronym stands for art cards editons and originals - they are popular with some collectors, being a standard 2 1/2" by 3 1/2")
I ended up getting three cards done. It's a gray day. My daughter's house has good views of massed trees from most windows. It was good practice playing with the trees, adding my dear crows.
