World Watercolor Month: Days 17 and 18

Ok… I had a major emotional break-down and missed a post or two I think. Anyway, life goes on and I keep painting because that’s keeping me… No, I should not say sane, because that I am definitely not. It’s keeping me going. Yes, that’s the word.

There was a small bundle of happiness waiting for me in the office yesterday morning:

I am really happy to get these. I never had a Strathmore journal before. I also never had Daniel Smith watercolors. I also bought 12 empty half pans and filled them last night and placed them in my Schmincke box, which conveniently came with 12 half pans of their basic colors and empty space for 12 more of my choice. How great is that!?

So last night I tried some of the Daniel Smith colors. Here’s the ATC I made:

They are very colorful and rich and I will definitely love them. I haven’t tried them on my new journal yet. But I am going on holiday in a few days, and taking it all with me. Oh boy!

The second ATC I made the day before, but I was too emotionally knocked-out that I did not post it anywhere until this morning. Of course, the mood shows well:
