Steer Wrestling WIP, cont'd.
Below is a photo of my palette. I use an old tupperware container, lay in a damp paper towel, place palette paper on top of it. Next I roll up paper towels, soak them then squeeze out the excess water. Then I lay out the paint on the damp paper towels. The paint has stayed moist and usable throughout this painting, adding more paint as I need it. The trick is to make sure the first layer of paper towel stays moist beneath the sheet of palette paper. Notice that I am using a combination of warm and cool primaries with the addition of burnt umber for help in mixing darks.
