Welcome, fellow artist, to another Tutorial Tuesday! Today I am sharing how to best and most efficiently clean up your oil painting station. I strongly recommend taking 10-15 minutes to thoroughly clean up every time you finish.
For one, it's waaaaaaay easier and faster to just tidy up as you go rather than scraping dry paint. And for two, it will make your easel area more appealing to jump right back into whatever you're working on because it will be all neat and ready. I mean, I know when I'm struck with a bolt of inspiration the last thing I want to do is scrape paint for 20 minutes and potentially let my inspo fizzle out.
So here's a short vid all about my easy methods for keeping a clean palette and organized workspace that's super conducive to harnessing creativity. Enjoy!
