Just a pigment of my imagination

When you're using cheap materials, you're always wondering "what's the catch?".
With these acrylics from the euro store, it's that the don't completely dry lightfast and so the layers drag into each other as you wash one colour over another - oh! and the fact that the colour selection is the pigment equivalent of chocolate "flavoured" candy bars.
Anyhow. I got my €2 euro's worth. The kids will find some use for them.

Around the back of the Cathedral, Kilkenny


The view from my window

I think the results are great. I especially like the stormy view from your window.

I love your sketches. I discovered you recently on Urban Sketchers and had to look you up because Ireland is one of my dream destinations.
The sketch of the back of the Cathedral is incredible. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Oh, and as a writer, I loved the title of the post - "pigment" of my imagination. Nice one!
