My new favorite color of paint and some other loves

First of all, I'll start by saying pink has pretty much always been my least favorite color. However, I have fallen in love with neon pink! This little bottle of neon pink paint packs such a punch. (Say that three times fast ha!) I love how when it mixes with other colors it makes them vibrant too. I also love it on it's own. If you've been following my Daily Sketchbook project on Instagram, you have probably noticed how much I've been using it.


Next to color, I've always loved texture. A couple of months ago, I found these texture tools from Prima. You drag them through wet paint to create patterns. They are so much fun!


I recently discovered the Art for Your Ear podcast. It's hosted by Danielle Krysa from the Jealous Curator. If you like hearing about artists' lives and their inspiration, then I highly recommend this podcast. Danielle does a great job pulling quirky stories out of the artists. It's light hearted but interesting and I catch myself laughing throughout the episodes. You should check it out.

This isn't too art related, but I love my African Violet! It's blooming right now and has the prettiest purple flowers. It sits on my desk and adds so much life.


Last but not least, I love the feeling of finishing a bottle of paint. There is something so satisfying about knowing I've painted so much that I used a whole bottle. :)
