Colour! Day 335

I can’t show you the commission I’m working on since it’s a gift for someone (we can’t ruin the surprise!) but I can show you the glorious colours I’m using on it.

I mixed new paint and I love how vibrant these colours are. They look just as good on the canvas! I find mixing paint can be very therapeutic….there’s something almost hypnotic about the process.

I mix my paints on a palette and then transfer them to this plastic tray that fits on my easel. When I’m done painting the tray goes into an airtight plastic container that I store in the freezer. This helps to keep them fresh – and they can last a couple of weeks.
