Those of you that advocate using tube paint rather than pans…. I would like advice on:
1. what type of palette do you use
2.how much paint do you squeeze out
3. does it run/go all over the place when you put the palette in your bag
4. how long does the paint last- how often do you refill
I would really like to use juicy paint straight out of the tube but do wonder how much maintenance it needs and how handy for daily on-location painting- throwing a paint tin in your handbag (purse)
This is a palette I bought in NYC last year. I can see that having small dabs of paint that I can re-fill regularly could work…. but I would be afraid to close this up right now and take out with me – paint would go everywhere.
Like many other people I read this great post by Brenda on how she sets her palette up
it is similar to what I do now but in a palette rather than in pans- maybe that makes a difference. The wells are easier to clean out and refresh. I find that my tube paint in the pans dries out and sticks in the corners.
I want to use WET paint and not let it dry…
I am getting some interesting comments on Facebook, but for those that comment on my stuff here, would be very interested in your thoughts…and I will do a follow-up with my findings.
