A4 sketchbook: Old lumpy acrylics

This not my own paint, I was visiting and found some.old but good quality Cryla Galleria paint in the garage. The range of colours is very narrow and the white is very lumpy. Nonetheless, it gives interesting texture for free.

With the DofE season about to start, I fancy taking a set of acrylics for campsite evenings. They need to be small tubes and a selection that I’ll actually use.

  • Titanium white
  • Burnt umber
  • Cadmium orange
  • Pthalo blue
  • Cerulean blue
  • Rose madder
  • (Pthalo green?),


8°C, calm after a storm.

I didn’t look forward to going up the ladder bit it had to be done. Another bout of heavy rain loomed. There were still gusts with some force which took the ladder before I could secure it. In response, I got rope and tied the top and bottom rungs to fence posts.

The broken and crumbling tiles were tricky to remove. One row was mailed and the others were interleaved and secures by their own weight.
