Blick orders arrive so quickly, it just amazes me. The three larger canvases did not come with this shipment, so I will expect them next week sometime. Here is what I bought:
Three 18 x 24″ gallery-wrap canvases. Three tubes of Liquitex paint: Alizarin Crimson Hue, Cad Red Light and Transparent Mixing White. Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid (Gloss). Yupo paper. Blick threw in a sample pack of Utrecht Artists’ Oil Colors: Ultramarine Blue, Yellow Ochre, Cad Red Light Pure, and Titanium White.
While I appreciate the gift, I don’t paint with oils and cannot imagine I ever will. I detest the length of time it takes for them to dry, I hate the way it feels like I’m painting with mayonnaise and I don’t like to use solvents. I would really have appreciated the same sample pack in acrylics or watercolors because I have been wondering about the Utrecht brand of paints and am considering trying some. (I have a gallon of Utrecht gloss gel medium and I love it.)
Not a huge haul, but I like to show you the stuff I buy. Since I try to be as frugal as possible, you will always hear about the best deals on supplies from me. I cannot afford to spend money recklessly or on things that don’t pull their weight.
