I have had some time to paint for myself. A student in one of my classes brought in a set of Dr. Martin's watercolor paints. I haven't worked with them as they come in a bottle with an eye drop stopper and are liquid. I wasn't sure how well they would be to work with, but I am always happy to try something new. I did a demo in class with his paints and liked them very much. They had a vibrancy in color and they remained translucent and I could lift the color. I bought a set of my own and it sat there for months. With time to experiment, I decided to work with them. Such fun and I loved painting with them.
