....Thanks so very much and I do hope you post your satin...it makes for such interesting compositions and I'd love to see someone else's take on it. I have just photographed some 'white on white' eggs for my next eggcibition.
....how great to hear from you. I pop in every once in a while to see what is new in your exciting life....and of course to admire "my" sketch.
I like Holbein but of course they don't have real darks. My two favourite colour groupings are the ultramarines and what I call the "mochas" but are probably called rose browns. They also come in four shades and blend so well with the ultramarines. If I was to purchase just a few to try out....those two groups would be my suggestions. Keep that charcoal pencil sharp...though I see we haven't really dragged you far from the CP...I do see a few pastels on your site.
Thank you both for stopping in and to those of you who stop but don't comment.....My very best of the season to all of you!!
