And guess what??? My sister-in-law just arrived to Greece, with a surprise for me - the Mijello sample colors, which I asked for months ago and she never told me over the phone that were sent to her!
And, yes, they were so kind to send me additional sample sets for our workshop! Although each set has only has two sample colors (Mijello Blue and Peacock Blue), I am sure they will be of great use for our seascape paintings when we will start again in September!
The surprise did not stop there, the package also contained one full set of 9 tubes (7 ml each) of the Mijello watercolors for me to try, which you can see bellow.
I must say that this made my day!!! It is difficult to believe that a few tubes of watercolors would bring such a reaction, but I am in a "happy corner" all day long, and thinking about the best way to test my new colors! Of course, the usual swatches and preparation of light exposure tests will follow (by the way, I just got from outside the Camel test colors, which have been exposed to strong sunlight for over 12 months now - results to follow soon), but I would also like to have a comparison of Mijello watercolors with other brands I have in a small series of paintings. I just need to figure out which similar colors I have from at least another 2 brands, and which subject would be best for the resulted palette.
I would like to close this post by saying thank you again to Kelly Elizabeth Clawson, the Brand Manager at Mission Gold by Mijello for this wonderful surprise!
