Ross Buys

I got this Winsor and Newton Promarker alcohol marker set at Ross in Hawaii Kai yesterday. It was the only one . . . and . . . it wasn't there the day before. It goes for $16.32 on Amazon. It was $7.99 at Ross. 


I also bought this 11 x 14 inch Winsor and Newton marker paper to practice on. It was $5.99.

Here's a test page that I did last night. The markers are juicy with ink and great to work with. The marker paper is ideal for use with alcohol markers. It's smooth in texture and holds ink well. This scene is from the book The Art of the Croods. 

I'm hoping to check out other Ross stores today to see if maybe got other colors!

Chet, so awesome!

Susan, I tend to get obsessive, and it seems that when I'm over it . . . BAM, I'm done.
