Last month I posted a question to the members of Postmark’d Art about which pens they liked the most for writing on fabric. The conversation became quite lively as members shared their experiences with a number of pens. Sarah Ann Smith said she was quite happy with a set of pens purchased for an on-line course with Jane LaFazio. Then I learned more about the on-line class — Sketching & Watercolor: Journal Style.
I had been thinking about taking some skill-building classes and this sounded like a good starting point for me. I checked out the schedule on line and signed up for the class.
When I received the supply list I realized just how steep the learning curve was going to be. I’ve never taken a sketching or watercolor class. The list of supplies is short but like reading a menu in a foreign language to me: Niji waterbrush, paper: Fabriano Artistico traditional white watercolor block 5″x7″ block, HOT press (is this anything like cold-press olives??). I have a lot to learn.
Jane suggests that you keep all the supplies in one place so they are ready to use at moment’s notice. This kind of organized approach suits me well. I am putting a tote I received for Christmas to work right away.
