Hi Everyone,
                      Just thought l'd share a hint esp. for those of us who are new to Watercolour.
My studio is my kitchen table :blush: Guess we have to use what we have lol.
For a time l was using two jam jars- one to wash brushes and one with clean water,althought it didn't stay clean for long  :painting:
A few days ago l purchased a kids sandbucket for $3 and it has been the best cheapy investment l could make!!!!
No more jumping up and knocking everything off my table....when the water became dirty!
It holds approx 1.5 lt and really is so much better than jars....so if you have this problem,buy a bigger water container and sit back :D

Hi Ginny..I'm a kitchen table studio, too...The bucket sounds like a great idea. (I think I need a larger table.) A large container also keeps you from double dipping in the coffee cup!

I now know, too, what the old adage means......"Watching paint dry"!!!!   :2funny:
