Hi friends! What a weird week. Anytime we have a Monday holiday my schedule goes out the window. I have been working on some larger paintings for a class I am taking which has cut into my video creating time so I didn’t have a Sketchbook Sunday video but I did film a time-lapse of this slice of pie. It was the last piece of pie we bought at a bake sale to support out local cub scouts and I thought it looked so pretty so I decided to take a break and paint it!
I used Mungyo watercolors for this, I have been getting requests to review these for years and I finally found a set to buy on amazon. So far I think them but they remind me a lot of the Jane Davenport and Prima watercolors. I need to do a brighter painting with these before I review them but so far so good! BTW Ifound some really cheap and awesome pencil extenders on amazon, they were 3 for $2.79 and free shipping and I don’t have prime but they still came fairly quickly!
Supplies (affiliate links used)
- Watercolors: I used the 48 set by Mungyo (colors: Naples yellow, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, ultramarine, english red and white) These colors are also in the Jane Davenport Neutrals palette for cheap!
- #6 and #2 round brushes
- White gel pen or paint pen
- 6″x9″ aquabee watercolor paper
- Colored pencils in white, yellow ochre and burnt sienna
I think whenever you feel inspired to paint you should! Even if you only have a few minutes. Those glimmers of inspiration are precious and often don’t come around when you have endless hours to create so seize them when they do! You can get more done in a limited time than you think. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
