Keeping your palette organized
I have lots of paints. My sponsors send me samples and I also buy a fair amount. All these tubes of paint can be overwhelming.
I tend to use a basic split primary palette regularly, deviating from that here and there. My palette table is an old fashioned bedside table with the single drawer and space underneath. I have pulled the drawer out and nailed it open. That's where I keep the most commonly used paints in large studio tube sizes.
I found one of the old drink boxes (Coke, Pepsi), which I have divided into four spaces by using lattice pieces and gluing them in. I keep spare paints arranged by color groups in these boxes. I keep the box in the storage space under the drawer in my paint table. I works great!
