Of course I don’t mean it as negative as in the song of the same name (though it’s not bad, either)!
No, I just went to the art supply shop to finally get some new blocks of paint for my aquarelle box. Maybe you remember – this was one of my daring deeds (by the way, this is the 25th task to be fulfilled!) and now after years of procrastinating I finally went to the small shop around the corner and got me six little boxes of pigments ready to use.
The colours I’ve got me are…
- madder brown
- yellow ochre
- Titanium-opaque white
- light yellow lemon
- madder red dark
- cadmium red deep
… all of which I use quite often. I had a pretty hard time to paint with only blues and blue-ish greens in my paint-box!
The other little boxes you can see on the picture above are the wonderfully designed packages of pastilles that I discovered lately at the tea shop just around the other corner. I decided to taste my way through all the flavours they got there, so far I’ve tried full cream chocolate, orange and strawberry.
While I’m at typing, another wonderful incident occurred as with Inbetween Days my last Blue Monday comic arrived! I fear I’ve got a huge crush on Victor (but at the same time am a heavy Victor x Clover shipper)… Lovely!
But now you’ve to excuse me, I’ve got to inaugurate these colours!
