- Always wash your brushes after each session. Wipe with a rag soaked in spirit, then wash with soap and water.
- Never assume a painting is dry..that way leads to paint on your best frock.
- Another use for baby oil! Rubbed into your hands it lifts the paint off a treat.
- Fix an underlying pencil drawing with spray fixative to prevent the graphite leaching into the oil paint.
- Cover unused paint on your palette with cling film overnight.
