The sample pots were only $10.58 for 500g. Actually, one of them I picked up for half price - pre-mixed, they were just looking to clear some stuff. So, might be an idea to add to the list for ferreting out cheap supplies - the good hardware store. Also, probably quite cheap to get boards of mdf or whatever, cut into smaller sizes as desired, for use as a canvas. Sometimes they have off cuts they practically will give away.
Yeah, you can get some pretty cheap deals on canvasses over here too. I have a bunch of small ones I've been sitting on for ages. Generally like to work with a larger canvas though.
Used gouache before - they give a good vibrancy, though I've yet to seal those works with a varnish or something (that being the primary issue, you can't get them wet or they run). Found that gouache, if applied reasonably thickly, cracks in time as well. Never used pastel with ink and charcoal. Only used oils sparingly - not confident with that medium, but I like the blending options presented by it.
Meanwhile, in non art-related news, I just got through the worst of a nasty bout of food poisoning. Gotta say, I've had more fun. Bed ridden for 28 hours. Still feeling completely wiped, but no more fever and appetite creeping back.
Well, I had sea air yesterday, only about 5 hours or so after my fever broke, out doing a job, didn't do me any blimmin' good - probably cos I shoulda been resting. Oh well. I rested today.
