Stocking Stuffers for the Artist

Hi there!
I wanted to share some  stocking stuffer ideas for the artist in your life.  My first suggest is a very beautiful, luscious red color called French Vermilion.  I use the one made by Sennelier and absolutely love it! It is a great color to use when painting red flowers.

Windsor Newton has an interesting article about the history and manufacturing of French Vermilion.  It is considered an opaque color with excellent light fastness so it will not fade with time.

Here is a close up of how I used it in this watercolor painting of poppies:  

I have just recently added French Vermilion to my palette.
