Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

But Waiting for Australia Post Sucks so Bad...

I grew up hearing 'Good things come to those who wait' and in general, I am a pretty patient person. However, I ordered myself some lovely new art supplies mid December hoping they would arrive before Christmas. I was not so lucky, and they got held up over the Chrissy break.

With the sad closing down of our Jackson's Drawing Supplies we are now left with little choice locally. Thank god for online shopping, but patience really is a virtue. 

Today my order FINALLY arrived! It was like Christmas all over again, as I excitedly dragged my large cardboard box safely inside.

I needed to stock up on a few things for the imminent commencement of #project8T4 - mainly, I needed some quality paper. After much research into this debatable topic and sticking to a reasonable budget, I decided to go with some large sheets of (1000 x 700) Fabriano Paper. Originally I had my heart set on Stonehenge Paper which I have used in the past, but the postage was just too high to justify.

I also splurged on a few tubes of M.Graham Watercolor Paints, which I can't wait to start playing with. I already own some M.Graham Gouache Paints and have been very impressed with the quality. You can purchase the M.Graham range within Australia from The Art Shop who also offer very reasonably priced and well packed shipping.

Waiting for the post certainly lacks the immediate convenience of walking straight into a store. But it really makes you appreciate your purchase when it finally does arrive. Especially those particularly 'good things' like brand new art supplies.

I will be reviewing all of these art materials and more in future posts. Be sure to subscribe to read in detail all about them and how they perform in my studio.
