Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with New Way to Save Paint

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!


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.
