New Palette

It was a very sad day on Sunday as my trusty palette of 4 years snapped one of its hinges and I had to order a replacement.    Luckily
Ken Bromley Art Supplies

still stocked them and once I’ve used up all the paint in the old palette I’ll move over.

As a bonus I stocked up on my favorite 200lb Bockingford paper.    Not many people make the 200lb weight which gives a bit of heft over the more common 140lb paper but isn’t as expensive as the 300lb paper.

Occasionally I look at the lovely brass versions of these  – 
House of Hoffman

 do a nice one as do
Craig Young

John Hurtley

 and a few other people.    These are nice but at around 400-500 dollars each I’ll stick with my 20 dollar version.    

Maybe one day…..
