tiny paintbox

Until I spent time reading in Roz Stendahl's journals it never occured to me that you could empty and refill the tiny children's paintboxes which are given as party favors. But dabs of gouache dry in each section: white, cadmium yellow, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, ultramarine, cerulean, yellow ochre, and burnt umber, and they re-wet well with my Niji waterbrush. I put a little bit of white paper in the lid and covered it with packing tape so I can see the colors when I mix them, because the plastic case is so orange.

Painting tools which fit in my pencil case tempt me to experiment with them.

I'm collecting all kinds of hinged, tin compartments... the idea of little paint travel kits is taking over my mind! LOL Great idea to use goauche too. :)

I love this little painting! Makes me want to turn an Altoids tin into a traveling watercolor kit.

I just came across your page the other day. I love your work! I actually just graduated from Carnegie Mellon so I was thrilled to see that you are from our beautiful artistic city. I hope you have fun at the three rivers arts festival this year I will be so sad not to be there.

Your style and dedicationto daily colorful sketches reminds me of the works of my professor Mark Mentzer over at CMU.

It is wonderful, I will enjoy returning to your site.

Thank you so much.
