An Abstract View



















New Paint! New Markers! A chance to play with dabs and daubs. My new acrylic paints are Pip Seymour Fine Acrylics and they are lush. I was looking for an alternative to the ubiquitous and very expensive Golden Fluid acrylics and came across these. They come in 250ml tubs and I am really impressed. Haven’t tried all the colours yet but the ones I have are creamy yet transparent. They are vibrant and ever-so-slightly glossy when dry. Me likey very much. It seems they’re only available in the UK and I got mine from Paint & Art . They may well be happy to ship to the US.

This teeny abstract was created with a layer of magenta, some swirls of cadmium yellow with a touch of white for opaqueness. Some Neocolor pastels, and doodles made with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen Big Brush which are available in the US. They are wonderful for quite detailed work as they have a very pointy tip. However, if you angle them slightly then you can make all sorts of cool marks.

I wish my camera could pick up the deep, vibrant colors on this page. Perhaps I’ll try to take a photo in daylight or squish the book into my scanner tomorrow.
