Wow Steven, I think those are great deals!!!!!! For certain the price on the senneliers and unisons are fabulous.  I drooled over the beauty of the unisons in the art store here but they are so pricey, like $6.50 apiece.  I think you did well.  Although that's a lot of money, I think I fool myself in thinking I don't spend that much when I go frequently and just pick up one or two things!


OH by the way Steven, I used the old grummies last night to try them out.  I really loved them.  They are dryer than the sennelier's but blend great.  What I liked was that I didn't have to worry about them falling apart in my had or depositing too much pigment on the paper.  On Sunday I had a problem with the sennelier's filling up the tooth of the paper.  Of course that was my inexperience too.  Don't be shy about getting these if you find them.

The portrait of your friend was done with those?  I think you and the Old Grummies had a bonding experience! O0  I'll have to wait a bit and then start looking for a couple Grummy sets, I saw one yesterday at 0.99 but 6 days left, will watch a few  :)  Maybe after the first of the year...

Keep watching Steven.  I won 2 bids on these and no one much competed.  Yes, as to your comment, I agree that me and the Grummies did indeed have a bonding experience.  I may have found a new favorite medium, although I just love oil, but the WAIT kills me!
