rounding out the week…

 

Sometimes in my studio I force myself to work with the materials I have at hand.  Usually the end of the month brings me naturally to this place as the budget for supplies often dries up mid-way through:)  So…these paintings were done using what I could find, which included the last few feet of a roll of Waterford #140 lb cold press watercolor paper available through Jerry‘s Artarama online.  It comes in a roll 5’wide and 10’ long, and handles almost anything you can throw on it.  I’ve used it for mulit-media pieces that have included layer after layer of latex paint.  Trust me…it’s good stuff!  Anyway, I was thankful I remembered to check the roll.  I also scraped the bottom of my artist inks and acrylic paints, which I water down and use kind of like watercolor.  Now that it’s the beginning of the month I’ve a few more materials to work with, but I have to admit there is something to using what you have and creating from that instead of adding to it.  I really do like simplicity.  It’s like a breath of fresh air.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
