Is it possible to fall in love with paint? Or a new palette?

I've been trying to decide whether to get Daniel Smith tubes since last year. The price of creating a palette out of DS paints would really put a dent in someone's savings. Especially since I rarely get to paint these days. But I really really loved the dot cards I sampled, and I'm trying to find ways to get back to painting regularly.

So, after more than a year of agonizing over it, I finally got my colors. I'm still waiting for 2 more to complete this palette though. That just means I'll be extra excited again in a month haha! Thank you @des_artroom for a more than excellent shopping experience. And thanks to @janeblundellart's blog where I got my start on which colors to get. 
My faves so far: Green Apatite Genuine, Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Rose, Cerulean Blue Chromium, and Moonglow.

I also included PWC and Holbein tubes that I've had for a few years (last 6). #watercolor #danielsmith #palette

Note: Sorry about the photo/color quality btw. Lighting is so bad at home, but I'm too excited to wait for morning and better lighting haha!
