|American Journey Metal Travel Palette|
Thursday, June 20, 2013
I received an unexpected gift in the mail two days ago from Cheap Joe's Art Stuff. It was a loaded American Journey travel paint box along with a brush! The note that was enclosed explained it was a congratulatory gift for being accepted into the American Watercolor Society annual show for the second time. Joe Miller is an excellent entrepreneur and promoter but his generosity goes well beyond just marketing his product. He truly is a great friend of the arts and the artists.
I decided to try out my new set with this image I already had sketched into my book. One of the colors in the paintbox is called Shadow and I thought it would work well for this backlit image taken at sunset. Perfect!!!!!! I love all the mixing space available and the generous space for brushes in the middle. The shape of the color pans allows for access of flats. There is a ring on the bottom of the box so one can safely hold onto the open container with one hand and paint standing up. All together a well designed and solidly constructed metal paintbox that should last for years. Thank you, Joe, for your continued support.
