One of the reasons I find painting so hard may well be the state of my painting area. To say it looks like a bomb went off is probably being too kind. Judge for yourself:
|The real realm of chaos.|
As you can imagine, trying to work amongst that lot is a complete nightmare. So my first task on my road to painting nirvana is to clean up my painting area. This will consist of:
- Sort out my paints. I have a real mish-mash of paints from all sorts of manufacturers, most of which have never been used. I'll start with a single range (GW) and only add paints to that if I need them in the future.
- Clear away all of the half finished projects. Start with a clean slate.
- Get rid of all the junk. Only keep what is essential to my painting.
