I've been considering larger pieces lately and larger pieces requires a larger palette! So the other day I went to the art store and the perfect palette for me just happened to be sitting in the clearance section! I just had to buy it!
Now, it's a right handed palette and I'm a lefty, but with a few modifications and turned upside down, I'm sure I'll manage just fine!
Also, Summer is right around the corner so I decided to buy a French Easel in hopes that it will inspire me to go outside and paint more... Wish me luck on that...
There is a catch though! Even though both items were practically steals (Palette was only 2 dollars), I did have one small problem... I like my studio furniture and belongings to match. This required a sanding and staining project!
Here are the materials I used!
And here are the pictures in progress!
