The circular pallette you see down near the books was once the packaging on a pizza. Those polystyrene ones are perfect for the job and they last for ages. There are a couple of tin lids there too that I use to put paint on but they're a bit bumpy, not that useful really but I couldn't bring myself to throw them in the bin.
I've had to put my big brushes and canvases to one side today. I'm working on a magazine illustration which should really have been done by now but naughty me....I forgot all about it!
I've made a start and will post it here when it's finished. I've never drawn a shark before!
(That's not a cup of tea on my table, that's my murky paint water. Don't worry, I haven't drunk it by accident....yet.)
