It’s no secret that if you are into art of any kind then you are bound to be an art supply junkie, addict, hoarder or anything else you would like to call it. I mean in this day and age how can one not be. So many good cool things, tools and never ending improved mediums in all the colours of the rainbow. I have spent many a year as well as a quid on so many supplies without actually committing to doing art, or doing it enough. Living in a country where I can’t easily source specific items that I needed meant I even had to spend more money to buy it online and ship it all across the globe. Nevertheless, over the years I’ve learned a lot. As I am exploring the local market constantly to find suppliers and source everything locally I am also always on the lookout for retailers that ship free worldwide which are hassle free and reliable. I love my tools, love using them and most of all talking about them. Learning about each medium and its ability to be used or manipulated in different ways is a process in itself.
So if you are an addict like I am, grab a cuppa, sit back with your feet up and soak up on some of the most amazing topics we can talk about! That is apart from ART of course!

While that is what you see, leaving white space on the paper is the most effective way to achieve…Read More
