Winsor & Newton Cotman

After months of deciding, I finally bought my own Winsor & Newton Cotman set!

Ta daaaaa ♥

Since I can’t afford the 45 set yet, this will do. I ordered mine from The Opinionated Store. It was my first online purchase from a local art supply store. It was hassle free! I just messaged my order on their Facebook page, selected the method of payment (Online bank) and delivery (LBC), and I got it the next day ♥.

Bras Basah

As I said in my previous post, we went to our preferred areas on our second day of our SG trip. My preffered place to go to was Bras Basah Complex. If you’re an art hoarder in the art field, THIS is the place to be!!!

This building is an artist’s heaven. ♥

I discovered Bras Basah Complex in the internet while looking for places to go before our SG trip. A lot of bloggers recommended this place because of Art Friend, Art Mark, and Straits. They have brands that are not available/hard-to-find in the Philippines!

We then went to Straits after. Its near the Bras Basah Complex so might as well visit.


I was supposed to buy watercolor tube/pans on this trip but I didn’t find what I was looking for. So these are what I hoarded:

I’m sure this will last for months/years. Happy with my haul ♥
