Okay, I've read everything I can get my eyes on and ordered several bottles of mediums. I am working toward going all Carder method but need to use what I have for now. Will a few of you experienced painters please share what you use for the following?
1. Brush dip (for after you've wiped brushes and they are mostly clean)
2. Medium to thin paints and slow drying time
3. Medium to thin and speed drying time
4. What you use to clean up your space, counter top, pochade box, easel?
Excuse me if my questions reflect my inexperience. I've done about 6 small paintings. I end up making a HUGE mess every time I paint and I'm trying to get organized and have a streamlined system.
Thanks everyone! I really appreciate your advice and expertise.
