Close to Home on my Art Table: Paints Lynn Cohen


These are my Winsor & Newton watercolors. The paints aren't in "order" as they have fallen out and were put back any which way, but I know where each one is when I need it. I like mixing colors on the inside covers. I've been using this set for several months now so it's pretty messy. The green has a big hole in it and the blue and white are almost gone too. Luckily, these pans can be replaced one at a time.

I drew this with a Prismcolor pen 08 black in a Co-Mo Sketch pad by Bee Paper 5" X 7" 80 lb. paper

I'm going to suggest that we put our "Location" on our posts. It can be added while on the right of the page when you upload your art, after you  add "Labels", "Schedule", comes Location. You can just put your country if you like or City, State, etc. I love that we represent lots of continents, and areas around the world. You can see where I added my state and country at the end of this post under labels.

Let's let others know too. It is optional of course. No one has to do this.

We are now 17 contributing artists to this blog! Thank you all for posting so quickly. There are a few more in line to do the same. I'm very pleased with this group and your willingness to draw, post and comment. Thanks for getting us off to a terrific start! Happy Creating!

  1. Happy Creating to you too, Lynn! I shall add the location if it does success. I hope. Do you use green most of colours then. I understand, you are livingn California, there it is green everywhere and the camelias are blooming in middle of the winter...

    1. Some spots in California are very lush and green all year round. Where I live the hills turn golden in spring and summer, however this winter they are not very green due to lack of rain. We are suffering a very bad drought this year! And yes spring flowers start blooming in Feb. and March! Daffodils and tulips too!

  3. I always love paintings of art supplies!!! They always make me smile. Is this a W&N palette? I had a small one with pans in it and went to the aquarium to paint. Something happened in the room where I was looking at the sharks underwater, and all the pans fell out and onto the floor. It was dark and there I was hunting around for the little pans on the floor. Even when I found them all I couldn't identify some of the colors to put them back in their "correct" spots without wetting them. lol I stopped using that palette because they kept falling out and nothing I tried kept them in.

    1. Not even Super Glue? LOL Mine normally just sit on my desk top so don't fall out. I can't remember what I was doing, perhaps I took mine on a trip when they fell. Or moved them from one room to another with the case open? Silly me! I do have a couple of the small sets from other companies I use for travel as well. In this case I've just remembered where everything is. Or if I do on occasion forget I do as you said, I wet the paint and try it on the plastic top mixing area. No biggie. A little wasted paint perhaps. But just a tiny amount. What a long response to your long response to my drawing my paint kit. And yes, they are Winsor & Newton's. ;-)

  4. Nice job. Lots draw their paint boxes to start a new sketchbook. Sometimes because they have switched out their colors for winter or spring. Are yours full pans? Lots of nice colors. :)
