gansai tambi swatches

Gansai Tambi watercolors by Kuretake.  They provide a chart for you in the box top to paint your color swatches on to.  So nice!

30 Day Coloring Challenge – Day 9


This is the same wet-on-dry technique that I used yesterday. For this version I used Arches cold pressed 14o lb paper instead of hot pressed, Gansai Tambi watercolors and an Avery Elle rectangle die in addition to circle die from the infinity circle die set by Hero Arts.  Which do you prefer?

the wind rustles – haiku by Crow


The background, inspired by Kristina Werner, is Kuratake gansai tambi watercolor on Arches cold pressed paper. I applied multiple layers using 3 different blues to create the graduated effect. The haiku is by Crow.
