My Creative Space Thursday


This is my creative space at the moment. I gave myself permission to purchase a new set of pencils. I have a tin of Derwent's from childhood...but I really wanted Prismacolor's. I was buying them one by one, but heard there was a special on at "Riot Art Store" I drove for an hour to get to the shop, but it was well worth it! They come unsharpened, so I have been sharpening 120 pencils over 2 days, then drawing a little shape with each colour to test it out. Its all done now.
Lets see your creative space! Play along here at Kirsty's Kootoyoo.

I love getting new art supplies.

I have had coloured pencils for years now but I'm never game enough to try them.

Your test page actually looks really cool :)

Lovely space :) And your test page looks like an artwork itself! I love colored pencils and some month ago I bought myself something around 20 of them and now I use them a lot! Great medium!

I've wanted to do the same with a new set of watercolors. But haven't yet. Maybe I will now that I see how much fun it looks!

Oh man I loved Derwents when I was little and do you think I had any?! I had to wait til I was an adult to buy some - my kids just like textas. They don't know what they're missing out on!
