A few words to add to the picture:
1. I found a new masking tape which I enjoy as it is very gentle on the paper - it is a Wall-Safe Tape from Scotch which I got off amazon.
3. I just refilled my hybrid watercolor/gouache palette - and wrote down all the names of all the colors - so I plan to make a post about it this week, as well as about my new colorful pentel pocket brushes filled with bright inks!
