New Tools

Excuse me while I get a little philosophical.

I’ve recently expanded my repertoire of art supplies to include markers.  Now I will admit I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my art supplies.  In art classes I favored oil paints and charcoal and pen and ink, with a few brief forays with chalk pastel.  I liked the tools I was familiar with.  They were the tools of the masters.  I always thought, growing up, that markers and crayons were for little kids.  I was absolutely wrong about both of them.

I acquired a set of Copic markers in cool gray, and another set of the warm gray.  With a few splashes of sharpie thrown in, I’ve come to truly love the effect they create.    I am in love with markers.

Expect many pieces in the future featuring my new-found love.
