Sunday I sent my doppelgänger to the markets and spent the day getting painty while filming my first video tutorial as DT for LuLu Art. But it didn’t all go as planned 1) i found we were out of coffee 2) the camera battery was flat 3) i had trouble editing it 4) it wouldn’t upload… 5) it still wouldn’t upload…

But in the end we ended up with 16 messy, inky, painty, inspiring art cards.
