Last night I listened to a podcast from Mary Gilkerson, and one of the things I took away was to mix my colors in advance. This way the palette is more cohesive, and you can paint without stopping to mix colors all the time. I tried it this morning and really liked it. I felt like I was in more of a flow. I am always searching for more flow in my life! If you are an artist, too, and haven't followed Mary yet, I highly suggest it. Very knowledgable. I love learning! Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday! This 6" X 6" original oil painting is SOLD.
