13 February

A quick watercolour portrait done at work today. I am using a small set of 12 half pans from Daler Romney. The colours are much stronger than the Windsor & Newton Colman colours I use at home which is partly why I am getting the skin tones too dark. I am wondering whether to buy some tubes of colour from one of the artists brands, I know they are expensive but they should last a long time.

    I have a few Daniel Smith colours. Dear but lovely. I get my stuff from the SAA. If you ever decide to join let me know because I can get us both a free gift. I often find stuff cheaper on Ebay but the SAA always do a price match so you get your loyalty points. Also there is no postage. I suppose that’s because you pay an annual membership of about £35.
