water colors!!!! How I love them sooooo!!
I'm currently painting a picture of Chidori, [link]
I had to trace this twice because I messed up the first one right away. I forgot that my pencil smears so badly with this crappy paint.
I traced it by taping a fresh piece of paper over the original and then tapping it to the window. Its really warm and sunny out today
I got to go outside! I was so excited lol But now its suppose to be very rainy XD oh spring!
But yeah, its not really turning out well so far
I suck at water painting people! lol I much rather do landscapes and stuff
I'm also painting against my closet door XD trying to get some natural lightning and my mom is all like 'why don't you use a easel?' and i'm like 'i don't HAVE a easel mom' lol so my parents and I talked and they are thinking about getting me one!!! I'm so excited
I found a really nice easel that can do floor standing and tablet top standing, that is great for water colors
If i'm even more lucky, maybe i can get them to buy me some real water color paint, so i don't have to keep on using these ancient little water color tablets. I want the good stuff, ya know the stuff that comes in a tube? oh yeah <3 -i got to use this in Advanced Drawing and Painting! - Or better yet, a small little tablet to put the paint on/in at least lol I'm currently using a blue glass small plate XD mom doesn't miss it from the kitchen lol
Have I told you guys how much I love water colors lately? Yeah
they're like, my hidden passion lol I really love doing them even if they are really time consuming. But seeing all those layers of details go down is half the fun! Even if its also 90 of the frustration! XD haha
So i found two awesome easels that are about 45 to 50 dollars each, so its not a huge price jump to pick one or the other. I'm surprised that I found TWO nice ones let alone one at such a good price. Easels get really expensive, all the way up past 1,000 dollars! Yay for my lucky find.
Oh and another thing I need, a new knit-able eraser. Mine is so old and used up that it barely knits anymore!
Oh and another thing I need. Brushes. I bought some from micheals a year back or so, however we bought OIL paint brushes by accident. T_T I need WATER COLOR ones so that hairs will bloody well stop coming out of my brushes and getting stick to my painting! Or, i'd be happy with three w.c. brushes, a small one for details, a medium and a medium large. One fine tipped one, one flat tipped one, and one regular
Side note on the last listing, I really want to be able to do more digital art pieces, however in order to do better original pieces ON the computer, I need a tablet.
I'd be okay with a used one! as long as it worked XD
Things I need for art list:
1 water color floor and tablet top easel
1 Knit-able eraser
1 pallet/tablet for paints
1 set of tubed water colors
1 set of water color brushes
1 block of water color paper
Digital Art need: Tablet
