Hi Jenifer, please do not be concerned on my behalf although I appreciate your caring that I may be offended I appreciate it. Sometimes life gets in the way of keeping up with comments posted. I am pleased that you think my comments were valid. Whist I am on the subject of commenting I have had a browse through your artwork and I like every one I would be hard put to it to pick a favourite. I have not been painting very much of late - that thing called life keeps getting in the way.
I keep look at buying some quality brushes mine are mostly cheaper things.. I 've been gradually buying better stuff since I started painting. I only started painting just over two years ago and only did my first watercolour last year
I have used w&n 300gsm paper for a lot of my work. l thek notice someone selling 450gsm 50 x 65 cm sheets of watercolour paper. at a very silly price and that paper is great to work with, for some reason they keep putting it up at this cheap price so I've ordered another 30 sheets of it.
I use watercolours because I'm not keen on using acrylic on paper , I've tried lots of brands of paper but tend to overwork the paper which stretches and buckles it. My preference is acrylic on canvas but I limit myself on using canvases as i have close to a hundred blocking up all the storage indoors
Thanks very much for your very kind comments on my birds watercolour. , .although I've been doing a lot of watercolours lately I still find them difficult as I'm not great on the foreward planning need for watercolours so your commemt was vert much appreciate
