New supplies arrived today. Jerry’s Artarama had a huge sale and I took advantage of it. I bought an inexpensive wood box ($9.99) for my pastels and gelatos, as I am tired of scrounging through a tote for them. I also purchased an inexpensive set of soft pastels by Mungyo. 30 full sized sticks for $24.99. I am excited to use them. My last purchase was an Art Sherpa recommended acrylic color by Golden. Since Golden only goes on sale twice a year, I took this opportunity to add Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold to my palette.
The box, which I now wish I had purchased more of, holds all my current pastels, gelatos and water soluble oil pastels. I have a lot of non-water soluble oil pastels and media which would certainly fill another box. I also have many pencils, strays and inexpensive sets, which would fill another box. Perhaps my next purchase will be this: 3 Drawer Storage Unit
