I know that there are those artists out there that like to squeeze out the whole tube into their palette. Then the paint is dried in your palette and ready for your next painting adventure.

But I am not one of those. I love fresh paint!! The colors seem so much richer when the paint is fresh and you can get your darks and your blacks quicker and easier. No more wishy washy watercolors!

Just keep your tubes handy and squirt out a little bit at a time. More if you plan to paint more. Is it really that much harder to carry around a few extra tubes of paint?
