more wretched excess
My acrylic phase was mercifully brief, though expensive. Then, I fell hard for oils. Unlike pastels, oils can be mixed to achieve color range. Theoretically, you can make every color imaginable with 24 basic colors. Theoretically.... I operate on the pastel mindset of 'the more colors the better.' I used to surf the internet late at night. My husband started referring to my horde as 'the midnight oils.' I don't wear furs, jewelry or Manolo Blaniks, but I see his point.
Did I mention that I have worked in an art store for ten years?
