Last weekned was so beautiful weather-wise I decided I had to go outside and actually use a travel set of water colors I bought several years ago. It was sort of like my bathing suit. I packed it just in case. I can't tell you how many trips and the wonderful places this watercolor set has been and NEVER been used until this weekend.
Crazy as it sounds it is true. So I set up outside in the Casa de Pantella to do some painting. I figured if I broke it in here I wouldn't be so timid about taking it out where we travel. Well, I am glad I did this here. It took quite awhile to tear off the cellophane wrapping on every little color. If I was on vacation I would probably give up before I got them all unwrapped.
I was concerned that I couldn't mix enough color in the small compartments for a painting. Well, just another excuse in my head I guess. I painted a couple of ATC's with this little set and I am quite pleased with the ease and colors available here.
I guess I am telling you this because I want to feel free to do more painting. I hope that everyone that reads this is inspired to take out their travel paints and do up a picture. Don't be timid like me. It is fun.
