Well, I think the days of this sketchbook are numbered. Not that it doesn’t do an adequate job, it’s just that after the four paintings I’ve done in it, I can already see the bottoms of all my watercolor pans – and some of them were nearly full just a few days before! Too much gobbling of pigment, so I think I’ll knock this sketchbook down to dry-media only. Which means back to the art store for me. A dangerous place to be! I think I might check the price of gouache when I’m there – though I might regret it!
