And that's NOT a pretty blue glaze on the paint-bowl. It's "clear" plastic. It has been my painting companion for 10+ years, following me from my brief stint in Japan. It has acquired some permanent layers of color on it now due to periodic uses on non-water-soluble mediums, and sometimes glue, that have sealed the dried watercolors in.And a peek at how the latest dragon painting is coming along. I got a lot of the water done today, and started on some of the koi.
