|Things I do Before I Paint.|
Preparation is a big deal for me. Before I start a painting, I assemble everything I am going to need. First of all, I make a decision - Paper or canvas. Then, I get out only the tubes of color and the few brushes that
I need for that painting, and I put everything else away. Water bucket,
spray bottle for isopropyl alcohol and paper towels are close by - within
So I don't have to look for anything while painting, I put everything on the right side (I'm right-handed). If you are left handed, your tools go on the left side. It's a simple set-up idea, I know - and it works for me.
