✚ Paper: I have been using the beautiful Arches watercolor blocks lately and I am so in love with them. This block is 10×14 inches, hot pressed, %100 cotton and it has a lovely,smooth texture (this helps when scanning artworks too) and makes your colors look richer and brighter. They are a bit pricier, but the quality you get is definitely worth it. You can find them here.

✚ Color: I used a little Yarka St. Petersburg watercolor set that I got a while ago and I customized it with a few extra color pans. The colors are beautiful, highly pigmented and vibrant (to me, they feel very similar to the Schmincke watercolors). You can find the set here.

✚ Brush: I used three different watercolor brush sizes: a no.5 Daler Rowney round brush, a no.2 Raphael brush and a 10/0 Daler Rowney liner.

Sammy + Emma: Reunited after big brother was gone for a week with his daddy in a work trip. He looks like he grew a few inches! The pictures might not show, but Emma is happy to have him around again. :)

line-2I know summer is gone  and all (did it went by faster this year?), but I am hoping that the new calendar will cheer you up and make you look forward to a colorful September. Have a beautiful beginning of Autumn! :)

A DAY TRIP TO THE SEA

A DAY TRIP TO THE SEA
Last week has been a bit crazy, but we took a day trip to the beach on Tuesday with one of our friends and felt so refreshing. Even a day can make a big difference.  As usual, Sammy loved the water and I think Emma enjoyed the view too, being her first beach day. Hope you are having a good end of summer! xx
