Fast, easy and fun color mixing…

Mixing paint is fun but can take time. I want to share with you a simple tip on how I do it efficiently. For large work, I rarely use a palette. Instead, I use a hand drill that mixes paint quickly.

Take a look…

Using buckets, with this hand drill that has a mixer attachment, makes it fast and easy to mix large quantities of paint. I save additional time because I have all the paint in a bucket right in front of the canvas, instead of walking back and forth to my palette on my work table. Streamlining your process keeps creativity flowing no matter how you do it.

Do you ever mix this way or have another mixing tip? Let me know in the comments.

In this week’s Art2Life Podcast, I have an engaging conversation with accomplished realist still life painter, Guy Diehl. Diehl’s rich and refined work evokes deep emotion within a minimal space, and he’s figured out how to do it using acrylic. Join me for this warm and informative discussion.
