I have hundreds of art supplies, but I usually only use a few of them.
This box is perfect for travel, but I end up using it around the house all the time.
I use a pencil to draw the initial picture, then I use watercolor pencils throughout the process. At the end I use them to accentuate the details.
Most of my work is done in little sketchbooks, so I don’t usually need my large palette full of colors. But when I do larger works, I love to use my Robert Simmons Sienna brushes. These little Niji waterbrushes are excellent for small works.
I don’t know why I always draw and paint faces. I think it’s because I’m trying to figure life out and I’m looking for answers or insight in the faces I draw. Maybe that’s it; maybe not.
In March I always think of my artist journals and my dad’s birthday. I remember the weather. And I often write poetry in March . . .
Which brings me back to writing. I’m supposed to be on a marathon “write” now, so I shall return to it.
