Very happy with my new gorilla box so of course I had to try it out right away in spite of the damp and cold.
these two were started outdoors last week but since watercolor does not dry fast enough outdoors in the winter I had to wait to finish them inside....so about half of the work had to be done in my studio.
I am really starting to feel loosened up ...probably need to bring more control back so it's not so wild.

Very brave of you to go outside!
Since I use watercolor, I think of it as a built-in excuse to stay indoors when it's cold.
This is inspiring. Love the *color*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful aren't they. I got one this past March and kicked myself for not doing so sooner. Mine is used for alkyds and works fine for that. TIP: I also have one of the white plastic clip-on thingies they sell that can hold brushes and pencils. If you take the two hooks off and turn them over it will hold your wet brushes vertical and hairy-end down so the water won't run in-side the ferrule and soften the glue. Have fun, Dave
