End of palette paintings
At the end of larger paintings there's usually paint left on the palette. To put it to good use, I create small paintings of whatever subject appeals to me. My internal "rule" is that I can only add white to what is left on the palette.
With the most current painting finished, I created these two little oil sketches and primed canvas paper. The apple and a couple of turnips (also known as swede in the UK and rutabaga in the USA). I used a more graphic style for these with bright colours and solid forms, still using a palette knife.
How do you use leftover paint?
