Jazper’s Cortillion is the star, oozing with color!
(BTW, if he doesn’t have it posted ask him!)
It is synthetic pigment (haven’t asked him yet)
and doesn’t respond to water the same way as the blue…
I love the deep brilliant CLEAR red — Yay!
Let’s look at the reds first, because I’ve been looking for a perfect clear red:
It is semi-transparent!
The bottom three were contenders on the web views
(Holbein, Daniel Smith and DaVinci)… I was hopeful…
seemed like they might fit the bill… but not quite.
Trying Pfeiffer Arts and Jazper’s, the clear (pun intended) winner is Jazper’s.
Looking at Pfeiffer’s Lavender Blue against Da Vinci’s and Daniel Smith’s
similar colors, it is lovely and intense! Very Blue!
I started the way all my doodles start…
The architectural earth symbol and the heart!
then added my other favorite doodle symbol, the star!
One is winging its way to a friend, and the other is up on my wall!
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.
“I think not….”
Me… why I journal!
