Carnival Squash :: Courge carnaval

Who so neglects learning in his youth, loses the past and is dead for the future.
— Euripides

I am trying a new watercolour paper that I bought from Amazon and it is very interesting and not too expensive… about the same price as the Moleskine sketchbooks. It is called “Pentalic Aqua Journal” and is a European milled 140 lb. neutral pH paper. This paper was recommended by one of my sketching friends, Larry D. Marshall. The paints take a long time to dry with it, but the quality is good. I found out today that I was accepted in Charles Reid’s Watercolour Workshop that will take place in Cape Ann next June — yeah! I also found out that I would be having a group vernissage in Hudson on June 5-7, 2015. Next summer will be a busy summer -)

Je suis en train d’essayer un nouveau papier aquarelle que je l’ai acheté sur Amazon et il est très intéressant et pas trop cher … environ le même prix que les carnets Moleskine. Il est appelé “Aqua Pentalic Journal”. Ce papier a été recommandé par un de mes amis croqueurs, Larry D. Marshall. Les peintures prennent beaucoup de temps à sécher avec ce papier, mais la qualité est bonne. J’ai découvert aujourd’hui que j’ai été acceptée dans l’atelier du maître Charles Reid, qui aura lieu à Cape Ann en juin prochain – oui! J’ai également découvert que je ferai partie d’un vernissage de groupe à Hudson du 5-7 Juin 2015. L’été prochain va être un été très occupé -)

Paper: Aqua Pentalic Journal
Colours: New Gambodge, Raw Sienna, Alizarin Crimson & French Ultramarine
