I am doing a lot of brush practice, and bought a Portable Palette, and a couple of new colors to add to my Winsor Newton collection. Sennelier Serpentine Genuine, M. Graham Magnesium blue, plus later I added a chrome green. Still not completely happy with this selection. Actually I am mostly using them to highlight and color passages in my written journal, but slowly, cautiously (why?) moving into sketchbook pages. I have so many! nearly empty sketchbooks to fill, and so little motivation, ideas, gumption, whatever.
