The Chic Muse sketch, D.I.Y. earrings and some art-shopping

 Sketch of The Chic Muse. Graphite, color pencil, ballpoint on Moleskinepaper.  http://thechicmuse.blogspot.com/ I saw her at the Mangosite and loved a photo on her blog that I used as a reference.

Photo made in train. Work in progress. I just bought new set of mechanical Pilot color pencils. These are 0,7 so they won't break easily as the 0.5. I also noticed that you can erase them easier. But Steadler has more pigmentation.

One of my favorite big artsupplies stores in Rotterdam: "Harolds" For the oilpaint I paint with Old Hollands now. They have different series, like A, B, C, D. And D is more expensive than A. But I have to say the quality is the same to me. I don't noticed a difference.

 April 2th I organised (together with another friend) a hensparty for my friend Rosa who is married today. We decided to do a jewelry workshop. They used the same beads from www.beadies.nl Besides drawing and painting this is another addiction. They have lovely stores with big drawers full of beads You can make your own combinations, that's why I love it.
