I have this wee obsession with paint boxes...
I finally got around to filling this one with my favorite paints(Daniel Smith, Winsor and Newton and one I only have a couple of colours of, M Graham) I made a fun colour chart letting me know what colours are staining and graining and so on...made me feel good, I love seeing all these colours!!
I have a WN white gouach in there for some final touches to my work but no balck paint since I love making my own:). No Schmincke paints in this one, I'll keep those seperate since they are my all time favorite paints. However I can't wait to use this paint box and make a wonderful colourful mess with it!

Over the bridge and into the woods...

Every once in the while, artists need references they can't get or find...what do you do? make your own:).
I just happen to be lucky enough to live in an enchanted forest! so into costume and out I went to get some photos.
Over the bridge and into the forest I go...

What a beautiful entrance!

posing is probably the hardest thing to do!!
Sometimes it's hard to take it seriously!

Ha ha! I'm not posing here, I was seriously cold!! turned out okay though:)

It ended up being really fun! this was my first attempt to do my own reference photos, besides just looking at the mirror to get face expressions right. It was a bit cold...okay REALLY cold but amazingly beautiful out there! I'd do it again, maybe in the summer though and get some friends to pose for me as well:).
I'm excited to see what I can do with these!!
