My wonderful hubby came bursting through the door with a new palette, a palette knife and some ink last night!
William Whitaker has some notes on oil painting materials on Concept Art. I found his section on palettes to be very informative.
My palette was prefinished, so I didn't need to do any finishing. After sanding the thumbhole to a comfortable roundness, I taped batteries to serve as weights on the back. On the front, I taped a spice lid to hold my linseed oil. It may be a bit cheesy, but it works!
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
