Final painting

Here’s the latest version of my Nightclub painting. It just needs some cleaning up around the edges here and there. Acrylic on canvas, 12 x 9 inches.

This shows my acrylic paint palette setup. It’s a variation on my casein palette that I posted earlier using the same gray plate for mixing. The difference here is I use a ceramic plate for the palette. It’s covered with a damp piece of muslin cloth, and on that is a piece of Sta-Wet paper from Masterson, which appears to be just heavy weight vellum. I use a plate for the dabs of paint so I can cover it with the mixing plate to help keep it from drying out if I need to take a break. I sometimes re-wet the cloth, but generally the paint stays moist all day with this setup.
