I have been here at the beginning of the year but left without a word, sorry about that.
Virginia, thank you very much for these challenges. I happen to have a cat with kind of the same name, I use several diminutives of the word cat in Spanish. Is the color of her eye true to nature or is it just in the photograph?
Christel, very nice car, you show very well its materials and forms. The shoes as well of course, but I very much prefer cars.
LiL, nicely done on those shiny shoes.
Kay, WOW! A complicated reference and,..., well, it doesn't look any easier now. I just admire your painting, especially the foreground.
This is my first pen and wash and I tried some new supplies for the first time too.
Paper - Guarro, 240gsm 60%cotton rough. Great improvement over my Canson Imagine, which I don't really like for watercolors, but it is so cheap.
Watercolors - Sennelier. I have Van Gogh, which are more than good enough, but was looking for a metallic box and they made me an offer impossible to refuse.
Size - 14.5 x 9.5 cm or 5.7 x 3.7 inches.
