    I have never seen glass as palete for colours, that is brilliant idea. It is easier to clean it as on wooden palette.

    Great idea to use a dropper to add the medium!

    Do you use the watersoluble or what I call waterrinsible or regular. I can't handle even the OMS

    I can't believe I have thought about using a dropper for the solvent, thanks for that.

    Florent – so right – No' 4: standing too close to the canvas. Trying to get students to stand back and look at their work can be SO difficult but it's something I stress to them constantly.

    I did realize that I've been making the mistake of not stepping back, explains why staff isn't where it needs to be, especially moving to a different angle half way through the painting.

    I never saw Bob Ross have these problems with his alizarin crimson & phalo blue skies, knife-dragged mountains, and phalo green splodged bushes.
