Good morning deskers,
Here we are again snooping at each others desks. Please join us at What On Your Workdesk Wednesday with a photo of what you have been up to. Lunch Lady Jan has temporarily taken over from our head desker Julia. This is the link.
What have I been up to? This is what my desk looks like:
I've only got a small desk in our living room (my craft room is being tiled.) so not much space. But this week I have been looking at water color tutorials as I really want to have a go at using watercolors. I bought a box of cheap watercolors and brushes (probably not a good idea to buy cheap ones...) and I am in the process of making a tonal swatch.
It's a Youtube video by esperoart (in English). I've also read a website called 'watercolor painting and projects' .They do several pages about basics for beginners
Last week I showed you the Flow magazine Special Edition about learning to draw. I'm going to use some watercolors there.
Now that I have read the watercolor basics, I have learnt that it is better to buy good quality watercolor paint because I only need a few colors, as all other colors can be made with those (and they teach how to do that). So please, any of you who know about these things... any advice will be gladly received. Websites, brands, even an online course. Any advice is welcome. I have also noticed that Winsor & Newton have a cheap range called Cotman colors. Any good?
Before I go, here is the postcard that arrived yesterday from Bavaria in Germany. It's an antique dolls house (non specified):
I thought it was real cute. (For anyone interested in receiving and sending postcards, here is the link to Postcrossing.)
Happy WOYWW and have a great week all of you,
Greetings from sunny Spain,
