Today I open my packaging with new art supplies and new tube which inspired by other artists, from my common research on what watercolors are the most popular among artists, what are the most “out of stock” watercolors in art supplies stores. I have a feeling this will be again as usual really beautiful color as previous.
This time I made a swatch of watercolor paint Manganese Blue Hue by Winsor and Newton and I felt like “I LOVE this color!” not someone else’s or top charts. I found a color I was searching so long time so I leave my idea someday to see it in among watercolors.
This color reminds me when I was a girl drawing with my markers kit. Blue eyes and princess fluffy skirts were absolutely THIS blue color! I call it “Cinderella Dress In A Tube”. In one moment I was transported into a little girl who I know as well as her her passion for painting.
I know it, because it’s me.
One more pazzle of me young girl is in my hand. I’m still a child: innocent neon markers colors makes happy not me only (as this is a color I found by research on what watercolors are the most popular among artists, what are the most “out of stock” watercolors in art supplies stores).
My friend whom I send my gift card has a parrot. I like to create personal cards with a funny story behind my painting. She knows how her pet loves to have a bath in a plate with water. This little surprise when she got a card with her lovely bird then she might open it and see a plate!
This little story, feature, a plate of blue water what makes such a huge difference. It touches the heart, becomes memorable, and a card each time she see it will reminds this wonderful feelings again and again.
As an artists we have such a possibility to touch someones heart with elegance, simplicity and … and so on…
When I painted a parrot gift card which you might saw in my Greetings video I used Manganese Blue Hue watercolor for a plate of water and a hint on a background for parrot.
