Creativity Challenge - new paints

New Watercolour Paints!

As we continue with out creativity challenge I decided it was about time I treated myself to some new paints. Or more accurately, some paints! All the paints I have bought in recent years have been for Ebi-kun really. 

I have been feeling drawn to doing more water colour work, so when I was in Tokyo I went on a mission to find something suitable. 

I remembered going to a big art store with  my friend Paige but couldn't remember where it was, I sent her a quick message and she sent me the name of an art shop back, plugged it into google maps and off I went. When I got there I realised it wasn't the store we were at before but it was 4 floors of arty goodness. Yes, I was in there quite a while!

It is a loooong time since I have done any watercolour work and the brush that came with the set holds water in the handle, I was a bit dubious at first but now I am loving it!

So here is one of my first dabbles, you can probably tell I am still trying to get used to the new brush but I liked how they turned out.

So how is your creativity challenge going? Did you try anything new this week?
