This is where I paint my smaller paintings, I use a the glass palette seen here and the easel to the left of the photo....larger ones are painted in my studio at the back of my house.
This is what happens on a painting day:
I like to get into my studio by 9am. (not always possible) The first thing I do is spend an hour checking emails and facebook. Because of the time difference here in New Zealand I find it easier to do this before I start to paint. It's an important part of my day because I use social media to build relationships, having conversations with artfriends, followers and fans.
I start painting around 10am...I mix my colors on my palette first. Most times I use a limited palette so it does not take very long to do it.
I take photos of the finished painting so it is ready when I want to upload it to my blog, daily paintworks, and website. The last thing I do is clean my brushes and turps tin...by this time it is about 5-45pm.
That is me finished for the day!!
P.S. This probably seems very organised, but believe me it is only like this when I paint. Other days only relate to the first sentence of what happens on a painting day and can be a complete shambles!!!
For this carnival I will hold a two day sale on my available 6x6in or 8x6in daily paintings...$50 each! View here. Sale ending on August 20th. Send me an email to let me know which one you would like and I will change the paypal button to the new price or if you would rather I will send you a paypal invoice.
Thanks so much for reading about my day..and thanks to Marla for organising this!
