Why we go to markets
Just gloating, I'm afraid, hope you don't mind. This set of well-worn-down Albrecht Durer pencils was a $1 purchase at the Camberwell market. Gosh that's a fun place to go! The teacup was another $1, probably from Wantirna (it has a crack, which is why it got drafted into pencil service). Putting your coloured pencils in to a cup or jug is just a GREAT way to store them and enjoy them. Also looks pretty on your blog.
These are soft and bright watercolour pencils - I have some pretty samples I post later. I love doing "comparison" pages in my art journal. Sometimes that's all I do, but hey, at least I'm keeping my hands busy.
