Blicksmas is Now!!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

I got a little splurgey the other day and so yesterday (we were out of town overnight, so today is Blicksmas-observed, I guess) arrived my new Holbein water-miscible oil paints (I don’t have a very good setup to use real oils, especially with the kid) and watercolor pencils of two kinds (Inktense and Prismacolors.) So, uh, expect to see some stuff in those mediums as soon as I have some time…

(Blicksmas is, of course, the day the big box arrives from Dick Blick. Blicksmas! In my house it happens roughly every three to six months.)

Fantastic idea for in-home figure drawing with some stakes. Never the same as from life, but better than nothing!

Addendum: Here be cooters. Aplenty. I sort of hoped there would be a little more on the artistic side of artistic nudes, at least in terms of quantity. I’ve gone through rather a lot of pages now and not really found much I feel like, uh, drawing.

This looks like it could be very cool, especially since it doesn’t have any toxic stuff. Or large pieces I have to try to store in my lack of storage areas.
