Blogs and Websites
Luminous Landscape – This is a serious Photography site with essays, product reviews, techniques and lots of great artistic photography. Always interesting .
Oil Color Palettes – Aaron Millers’ blog lists palettes used by painters over the centuries.
ASWExpress – I have been using ASW online for over 10 years to purchase my Arches watercolor paper blocks and other supplies. I highly recommend Arches, they have been making this paper for over 500 years, since 1492 ! The blocks prevent the wet paper from buckling, just trim the single sheet off with a small blade when the painting is completed.
Blick – Their Masterstroke series Flat Bristle brushes are very nice. Good overall selection of supplies. I like driving up to the Berkeley store to select brushes by eye.
One of my favorite Plein Air painting locations in La Jolla, Ca.
