Are you afraid of phthalo? Well listen to this. I recently took a tour of the Gamblin factory in Portland with some artist friends, and while I was there I learned some things. Among those, was that they have a whole line of "student grade" paint called 1980. The phthalo in this line has some marble dust as filler, which makes it cheaper. The tour guide suggested this might be a less "scary" alternative to the full strength phthalo. He then handed me a complimentary tube of it, and I've been using it ever since. I LOVE it!!! Before I would always use TINY, TINY amounts of pthalo to get what I wanted. Now I don't have to worry! It's awesome. I highly recommend it. And I'm really not just saying that because they gave me a free tube. : )
Meanwhile, this is another scene from San Francisco. I love these typical street scenes.
