Another little warm up wash for when you just don't know what to paint. Let the paint do the thinking for you.
|How dirty is your palette?|
Start with a nice dirty palette. I have a number of palettes but this is the one I'm using more frequently these days - It's just a flat plastic palette which has the advantage of loads of space for pigment. I don't always clean off leftover paints and this is what my palette usually looks like.
Soak a sheet of paper in water - I literally put it in a bowl of water for 15 minutes. Slap it down on the palette and press down gently. Shift the paper slightly to get the pigment moving.
Then its just a case of selecting the areas of the paper that inspire a painting.
