Hi, thanks for your feedback and lovely compliment. Yes, they do sell prismacolour pencils at the art shops. I usually buy them individually, because the sets are too expensive over here.
No, I'm not a textile designer, but this line of work probably would have suited me. I did experiment in silkpainting briefly, but that's about my only connection to textile design.
Nice to meet you!
Thanks Kath! Do you do non digital artwork as well? I found my first prismacolours years ago, while still in Canada, and have used them ever since. The colours are so brilliant, no wonder we love them.
I have done some non-digital work. I bailed out of art at age 14 and, except for doodling, did not return until age 38 when I had a breakdown after I lost a baby. During my hospitalization, I was allowed access to art therapy supplies. I made huge abstracts, using prismacolors, and that helped me so much. So, I began studying art, on my own. I seemed to gather artist friends and learned from them.
10 years later I received a grant to study at MICA and took a figure study class. That is my only formal art training to date.
So, I only do non-abstract and non-digital work to help my kids learn.
Yup, colors are brilliant ... far smarter than people.
