New Palette!

My wonderful hubby came bursting through the door with a new palette, a palette knife and some ink last night!

William Whitaker has some notes on oil painting materials on Concept Art. I found his section on palettes to be very informative.

My palette was prefinished, so I didn't need to do any finishing. After sanding the thumbhole to a comfortable roundness, I taped batteries to serve as weights on the back. On the front, I taped a spice lid to hold my linseed oil. It may be a bit cheesy, but it works!
