I used my day off to play with paints. These are all from found photos, in a scrapbook I found at Goodwill.

I’m using the seascape and landscape photos from the photo album I found at Goodwill as source material for a series of quick paint sketches. (Quick for me, that is. I’m trying to spend no more than 15 minutes on each one.)

This one was done with Faber-Castell Gelatos and Arteza gouache. I’ve not worked with Gelatos before, but I enjoyed using them with gouache. 11/10 would do again.

I gave in and bought some Arteza gouache paints to play with. I had fun with them, so it was money well spent.

gouache on 140 lb Canson cold press watercolor paper

I had been planning on going to the animal shelter yesterday after work. So of course, on my way to work yesterday morning, the brake warning light on my car came on. Instead of looking at dogs, I dropped my car off at the auto shop. They called this morning to say that there’s a broken rear brake line, leaking rear differential, and a broken brake caliper slide, all of which will cost about $500 to fix.

I’d like to stop hemorrhaging money soon, pleaseandthanks.
