This is what I did today. Painted a kelp forest and a bottlenose dolphin.
So I came into uni the other day and showed my illustration teacher some of my older work. He said that something was wrong and asked to see the water colours I was using. I gave him my little box set (hand me down, prob older than me) and he immediately told me to throw them away and buy a new set cause it was making my work look dull. ’Do you have $100ish dollars free? go treat yourself.’ he suggested. ‘Oh nonono’ I was like, I cant justify that kind of money on paint! So he FORCED me to take his expensive watercolour set home… against my protests…
Oh god I’m never going to be able to use cheap paint ever again, never again!
Sorry for the photos, I don’t have a large enough scanner. Colour saturation is insane. Now I actually want to get good so I can do these colours justice. Forever a slave to expensive taste. My wallets going to suffer.
Think I owe my teacher a thank you gift.
Edit: tumblr keeps flipping my images. sorry.
