Tuesday's Tips and Techniques for Watercolor Painting


Clean Your Palette!

It is best to clean your palette when you're done painting for the day.
If you've finished your painting, there is no reason to save the slop on your palette.

It is best to start with a clean fresh palette every time you sit down to create a new painting.

Taking the time to clean your palette at the start of a new painting, may spoil your enthusiasm to paint. You may end up loosing your muse if you have to clean up the leftover slop.

When you're done painting, clean your palette!

Thank you for the advise Rita,but I also found that sometimes uncleaned palette can bring you quite an experience. I've once challenged myself and painted whole painting just from my "dirty" palette: it came out pretty good too :)
Thanks,
Irina

I go back and forth... Sometimes I use the paint later, and sometimes I wipe it all away. Is that a butcher's tray you are using? If so, how do you like it?
