'Sea' colours on the palette.
When working on small paintings, I mix Liquin Impasto with paint applied after the first layer has been put down and dried.
And frequently scrape paint residue and deposit at the top of the palette, wiping the rest of the board to create room to mix more colours as needed.
Here are some paintings in progress, with labels showing how many times each little board has been worked on. Some working has been more prolonged for example, the painting on the top right has had a lot more labour than the centre pic (red ground) which has had paint 'pushed' onto the surface on two separate occasions, without any thought to pictorial composition so far.
