A friend of mine gave me a gift certificate for BLICK Art Supplies! I've never ordered anything for myself from BLICK...just student grade art supplies for school. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to narrow down what you want when are given a gift card/certificate? I wanted to get the biggest bang for my buck. I rarely ever spend big money on my personal art making. I'm a teacher, husband, and father of three....I pinch pennies!!! ha ha I ended up getting this BEAUTIFUL watercolor set from Van Gogh. They are the botanical colors (I love to do nature paintings.) I've not used them yet because I'm still trying to decide what layout makes sense for how I use my paint. I'll be sure to share once I start painting. If any of you have used Van Gogh, and have any ideas or tips to share...please leave them in the comments.
