What is your favourite art medium?

Mine is all of my media! Whatever I am currently painting with.

I have painted with acrylics for more than 35 years, because when I enrolled in a paining class at TAFE im 1980, I was so allergic to the other artists\' oil paints, my eyes swelled shut and my asthma flared up. Sadly, I had to leave the class.

Acrylic paints to the rescue

Back then, the quality of the readily available acrylic paints was not so hot, but still made painting an enjoyable pastime. Student colours by Chroma are now pretty good quality, and are used by quite well known artists here in Australia.

Watercolours have no strong smell

My favourite watercolour paint comes from Art Spectrum. These Aussie paints are juicy and full of pigment. The range has many colours that I know you will love. There is a Landscape set, and a Starter set, both of which I have bought. The Starter set incudes a mixing palette, 12 tubes of colour, sponge, assorted brushes, all in a lovely wooden box.

I painted the picture at right, and lots of others, with these delicious paints.

If you are wanting to buy some wonderful, juicy, watercolours, you would be extremely happy with these.
