I went to OCAD recently, but I decided that Aboveground was much more fun. There was the store itself, but outside in pavilions were art supplies galore! My friends and I drooled at it for a while, but then decided that there was nothing interesting save for gigantic canvases for only six bucks, and we went into the store itself.
My jaw dropped.
IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL. There were watercolor sections the size of my room, same with the acrylics and brushes. They even had real sable paintbrushes! :o Near the back were nice easels, tonnes of canvases, and to the left of the store from the entrance were pencil crayons, inking pens, clay tools and clay, and one hundred other art supplies, while on the second floor were easel sales.
I ran up to the pencil crayon section and saw separate Faber Castells. My friends were laughing as I sat there, drooling, at them. I bought cream, tan, rich chrome forest green, and also a pencil (haha) but what? THEY WERE OUT OF BLACK FABER CASTELLS. WHAT THE HADES?
I searched and searched, but only found dark, dark gray. So out of desperation, I bought a black prismacolor. (sob)
This entire picture is made out of the colors and pencil that I bought. Except for the blue eyecolor, that is from my own collection. Henceforth, only 5 colors were used in the entire thing :3 I could have made it 4 or even 3, but I decided to add a tan-ish underbelly.
