Shopping for supplies is one of the joyful activities that accompany the hobby of drawing and painting. Even though I do not need anything, I enjoy shopping at the art supplies store and usually end up with something. In my enthusiasm, I always buy more than I need.
All I needed today was a natural hair flat brush for background washes. But…
I don’t quite need the masking fluid yet as I have not approached the stage of doing really fine detailed work but I figured what the heck, it’s just a matter of time that this would come in handy. My excuse is that this one from Daler-Rowney costs less than $7.
The masking tape I use to tape the paper to the easel board is too sticky and risk tearing the paper. I might as well get some tissue masking tape. Afterall, it’s such a lovely shade of yellow.
I already have a couple of round water containers with covers but isn’t this 3-in-1 really cute?
I know I would find any small excuse to go shopping for supplies yet again.
So much for a life of voluntary simplicity. Sometimes, I simply have to eat my words.
