A new sketchbook and yet another paint tin!

My S&B sketchbook

I decided to give the Stillman & Birn sketchbook a go (the one we got at the symposium) Mine is curious... has the logo embossed on the back( upside down) and the spine has been hacked somewhat... ah! imperfections make a thing special!

110826 Square Schmincke Tin Setup

For all you fellow palette junkies out there... this is what I have decided to start with in my new schmincke square tin... I think that I am going to enjoy having some full pans!!!

And finally for today...

110826 S&B Title Page

ok... here is the first page of my Still & Birn sketchbook. I did a page like this before... they are very fun and relaxing (this is slow neat Liz in action which doesn't happen that often these days!)
So this is an image of my three current paint tins. The top 3 rows represents the set I took overseas, the next four the squre schmincke set and the final three the extra schmincke set (that I didn't need to buy but it was so cheap)
Now what am I going to do with 3 sets????


  1. We just sold our house in Arizona after 18 months on the market. So no more driving to and fro between AZ and California (and no more gardening in AZ when it's 110F). Hooray.
    Once I have unpacked the last of our stuff I will have time to enjoy your posts more leisurely and get out there and do more of my own.

  2. If it refers to painting sets: better more than less! ;-)
