pphew! sorry for the late reply to these >.< i figured id just reply to all these in one post with some pics. Below are the watercolors i use and the the gold paints (keep in mind those pics i posted were like first attempts @_@ im still getting used to these…)
The water colors are Mjello Mission Gold Watercolors in the 34 tube set and the gold palette are the FineTec Artist Mica Watercolors in the Pearl set.
Now I’ll state first– both these sets are kinda pricey. The FineTec palette (about $27) is so worth it though because it comes in different golds and one tube of gold gouache is usually like $9 each or more depending on the amount of mica, so def worth the price and variety.
Below: from lightest to darkest on ivory tinted paper [Silver, Moon Gold, Gold Pearl, Arabic Gold, Tibet Gold, & Inca Gold] they look SUPER outstanding on black paper as well!
my fav is the richest one, the Inca Gold.
They are super nice, but if you plan on getting them, they are super HARD palettes! It’ll take a lot of scrubbing to get them activated and to have that nice gouache-like thickness, so if you don’t want to ruin your nice brushes, I def recommend getting some Ox Gall. Adding a drop or two of this will get them activated in no time, and with a nice opaque thickness. (the brand I have below they dont sell anymore, but other brands still make it)
As for the water colors, ehhh i feel weird cuz those vegetas were like my first attempts with this brand. Ive always used the Sakura Koi 24 color set palette because theyre super nice and super cheap (like $20) and Ive had them for years. I only got these because I wanted higher-grade watercolors in tubes. But they are very expensive, but for good reasons: they have a lot of pigment, which makes them so vibrant and bright and theyre designed to be very close to natural colors, not to mention theyre so SMOOTH when painting and they’ll probs last me forEVER because you get so much color with very little water.
(opera is best color IMHO) here’s a color chart I made (that took FOREVER btw) to give you an idea how beautiful they are and how many nice colors they make
so yea! those are the paints I used for those particular pics. Course if you would like a nice, cheap watercolor recommendation that works pretty well, Sakura Koi’s are a fantastic substitute. …..SORRY IF THIS WAS LONG i just akdfhalkfhd i like talking about traditional media..lol. hope this was at least a little informative >.< if anyone has questions or wants some recommendations (while also saving some money) feel free to ask! I’ll help in any way i can with what i know, cuz despite posting mostly digital art, I am a traditional art supply FANATIC.
a trendy cropped tank top can only get cooler if you make it slightly sheer AND adorn it with some hip crescent moons … done and done. i’m loving this tank for summertime concerts and trips to the ice cream shop.

One day I‘ll forgive myself for still missing you,
for letting glints of past days cross my mind,
but boy, aren’t they blinding in their hazy light?
I wish you could see me now.
Me and the soft tints of this life,
where days are full of loving smiles,
where I learnt to fall into warm, little arms,
it’s so easy, like a goodnight lullaby.
But for as long as I can remember,
I’ve only craved one thing.
To look and see, till I go blind
hear and listen, till I go deaf,
feel and feel again, till I go numb.
And that’s where you come in,
with long gone dreams paying a visit in my sleep.
Of all the nights I‘ve spent awake,
you are the quickest one to slip away.
Of all the skies I‘ve ever laid my eyes on
you are the stinging blue aching in my sight,
the fervent stars flaring up the horizon,
the ivory moon grazing the night in its walk.
Of all the summers I can trace back in time,
you‘re the one that left burns on my skin,
with heat that had me begging for my breath.
Maybe what they say is right.
You can’t make summer stay for you.
Maybe we’re not allowed to feel that much,
remembering scorching summers late at night,
but loving spring as the only season of our life.
“You’ve got visions of the past, let them follow you down, they’ll come back to you some day, and I found myself attached to this railroad track, but I’ll come back to you some day ” -Ghost Town, First Aid Kit
“Les beaux soirs où l'espoir berce mon rêve. Nos tourments bien charmants, si loin du monde (The beautiful nights when hope nourishes my dream. Our quite delightful torments, so far away from the world)” -Si Tu N'étais Pas Là, Fréhel
“When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun. Where the sun would set, trees were dead and the rivers were none and I hope for a trace to lead me back home from this place, but there was no sound, there was only me and my disgrace” - Wolf, First Aid Kit
Summary: Life isn’t easy for a fledgling vamp trying not to feed on humans. Your brother is the only one who is looking out for you. That is, until one day you find him dead. Then, the famous Winchesters find you and even though you’ve just saved their lives, the shorter angry one won’t lower his blade from your neck. Yeah. Life isn’t easy.

Notes: Hello honeybees, did you miss me? I’m sorry for my absence. Going from doing nothing all summer to not having an hour of free time came like a punch to the face. Nonetheless, I wrote this yesterday in my random blessed one hour gap before physics class. Hope you enjoy!
Your brother winces as he watches you bite into the neck of the deer. Not because of the action you were committing but for whole other reason entirely.
