Wow! I discovered a strange way to save paint on my palette. A week ago I accidentally spilled a little mineral spirits into my cadmium red light and it has not dried up at all and I have been able to use it rather than replace it with fresh paint.
That is so weird! I could see linseed oil doing that but not mineral spirits. Sometimes I put out more paint than I need. It is always so hard to know how much of the painting I am going to change and sometimes I end up just adding a few dabs here and there.
Any oil painters that are reading this know how expensive good oil paint is. My paintings cost a lot to make and I am always glad to find ways to keep from wasting paint.
Anyway, just about done with my latest and I am pleased with it! Just have to be careful not to over think it and wreck it.
