Armendariz painting materials now available online

I have been painting with Jack Richeson & Co. art materials for over twelve years now. I have put together a basic studio kit of brushes, paints and a palette along with a selection of just brushes that I recommend. These are great materials if you are just getting started in painting watercolor or are even more advanced. These kits are available now at Judsons Art Outfitters.
