The Perfect Sketchbook

Here is a project from Singapore that I would like to see come to fruition. In this day of cost cutting and looking for the cheapest way to do things I think it is very special. It's a sketchbooks made from beautiful 100% cotton paper with lots of thoughtful details.

You can link to the Kickstarter website here
Here is a little more from Parker Blogs
Here's the YouTube video.
And you can have a look at Erwin's Facebook page.
There are only 24 days left to back the project. I hope it comes to fruition.

Daniel Smith Watercolours

Art Scene, in Ryde, is one of my favourite art stores in Sydney. Friendly, capable, well-staffed, good prices, good sales, great framing...and they are finally stocking one of my favourite watercolours - Daniel Smith.

I have used these paints almost since they were first released in the early '90s and tried every one of their massive range of over 200 colours.

On Thursday 31 July I'll do an in-store demo from 12.00 noon - 2.00pm, going through the pigment characteristics and painting out a huge number of the colours I like best.

Hope to see some of you there.
