Jarir Bookstore and Colour Note

Jarir Bookstore
I brought my acrylic paints and brushes with me but I needed to get some canvases here.  I tried Jarir Bookstore first.

They had a few canvases and certainly looked like a good place to buy canvases but they were pretty much all sold out.  The only thing that remained was some really huge ones and some square ones.  I spoke with one of the sales representatives and he said I could try Colour Note which was nearly and just a few minutes drive.

I did see this cute thing at Jarir Bookstore though!

Colour Note

I drove over to Colour Note and this place is great!  They are located really close to Thai Snack.  They had loads of canvases made of different materials and even had black canvases.  Additionally, there were many other art supplies.  I ended up getting 4 canvases: 36x27cm (30 QR), 46x38cm (36 QR), 50x70cm (81 QR), and 22x16cm (24 QR).  The quality seems pretty decent so far!
