For this painting, because I wanted to do a really good job, I bought some Grumbacher paints – 12 x 7.5ml tubes for $60 (Canadian). I should have just restocked my Winsor and Newton because the new paints proved to be very grainy, hard to mix and when trying to layer the paints, they just washed away. It was annoying to work with. I still have a lot to learn. This painting is going to travel to Spain and that’s exciting.
