Don't you just love when you're working along, having an normal-sort-of-day, and the postman shows up with a box of sunshine. Today I'm restocking my gouache supply. Not with onesie-twosie-tubes, here and there, but with all 84 colors in this particular range.
I'm amping up for major output this year.
In my years of ordering art supplies online from all over, I don't think I've yet seen such meticulous packaging. I tore into the bundles like it was Christmas. It took me a good 20 minutes to free the tubes.
Come to think of it, that sounds just about right.
