This week I bought some new tubes of acrylics and watercolours that were on special. The Winsor & Newton acrylics are an upgrade to their Finity line. Improvements include no colour shift from wet to dry and a longer open time. So far they handle really well and feel similar to the Golden acrylics I have used previously.

The watercolours are the Japanese brand Holbein. These paints are gorgeous. High quality watercolours at a great price. After much research on Handprint and Wet Canvas here are the colours I chose:
