A time-saving tip to take to your studio

Here is a simple tip that helps me stay in a flow as I paint. It could help you too! I use color-coded bins to keep my paints organized. My paint tubes get so messy that I can’t even tell what color is in them. But if I take them from the bin marked with yellow, then I know what I’m getting. Likewise, when I’m done using the paint, it has a place to go where I can easily find it again. What’s cool is that seeing all the colors clearly keeps me from overthinking while I paint; all the options are right in front of me! It’s a simple solution that keeps my table neater and my process more efficient.

Take a look…
