Palette 101 - this lesson will illustrate how I manage a medium size palette.

Here are a few points:

  1. Place the paint towards the edges. Seems like no biggie but this little technique gives you a lot more mixing area.
  2. Some artists opt to line the paint up in the middle too. I prefer edges but you can give it a try to see what works for you.
  3. When you start mixing on the palette try to designate areas for certain color families. This will help you mage your colors and give you some extended time before you need to stop & clean.
