In Such Company



In Such Company, oil on paper, 17.5 x 14 inches
"Have a sort of pouch made of pasteboard, or just thin wood, made large enough in every dimension for you to put in a royal folio, that is, a half; and this is good for you to keep your drawings in, and likewise to hold the paper on for drawing. Then always go out alone, or in such company as will be inclined to do as you do, and not apt to disturb you. And the more understanding this company displays, the better it is for you." - Cennino d'Andrea Cennini (c.1370 - c.1440) in The Craftsman's Handbook "Il Libro dell' Arts" translated by Daniel V. Thompson, Jr.

Thanks for the Etsy heart!

You aren't using metallic paints are you?

My colors haven't changed in years - same six as in this previous post of mine here.
