I bought a portable watercolor palette yesterday that I've been wanting for a long time, and also a sketchbook that will apparently be the only sketchbook I will ever need.
And I think they're right. This sketchbook is awesome and durable!
I'm usually terrified when it comes to painting things in color. I don't really trust myself to have the best judgement - but I also wanted to cast this fear into a fiery oblivion and conquer it. What better subject to do it with than chilis?
I will say that it took me a lot longer to get the ellipse of the bowl down than the chili's themselves. And I still think it's wonky. :/
