Ahhhhh, Life Drawing!

One of the nice things about being back in the Maryland area is that I still have a few art connections. On Saturday mornings, at Montgomery College, there's a wonderful open life drawing session. The artists all chip in to pay the model, and yesterday we had a splendid model. It felt so good to be drawing again, even though I'm rusty and many of my proportions are off.

Tube Wringer

This is my favorite new toy. It's manufactured by the Gill company, and I got it from Dick Blick for around $20.00. Very well worth it. It's a metal clamping system for wringing all the paint out of each tube, and it works just great. I can hardly believe I've been painting for almost three years now without one. They are also available in plastic. The link is here: tube wringer
We'll put it in the category of great tools!
