Yesterday I managed to finish off the stitch experiment with shades, hues and tints. That is all the stitching done for chapter five, but before I creep on to chapter six I get to play with paints for a while :)
I dug out some tubes of acrylics that I've had lying around for years, but somewhere along the line red has gone astray. I know I had red at some point as I remember using it but it's just not with the rest so I've stalled until red can be bought. Hopefully 'the old man' will be able to find some in town during his lunch break today.
