My cup runneth over and my palette was going dry. Yesterday, I spilled my water on the table while painting. Today I dipped my brush into my glass of drinking water noticed how shallow my Reeves watercolor travel palette was getting. So I refilled my palette. I dug up my tube watercolor paints (I prefer pan paints for my practice) and squeezed out and discarded any liquid that accumulated at the top of the tube before the paint came out. Then I refilled my yellow (that was practically empty), and every other color – phathalo blue, ultramarine blue, sap green, permanent green, bright red, orange, ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber, black, and instead of refilling the white with white, I put violet in the indentation. Letting it dry 24 hours, but used it to work on my next blog post piece – and the paint reconstitutes with a little water. Easy peasy. Since I don’t use a lot of tube paint, this is a good way to use it now rather than running the risk of it drying up and going bad (unable to come out of the tube).
