I thought I would give you a quick view of my mural work station each day: my scaffolding (or as I affectionately refer to it, “the rack”,) cluttered with all the important tools of my trade.
Here’s a shot of my “typical day” at work. My palette board consists of multiple mixtures as I am in the touch-up phase. This translates to me dabbing various colored paints wherever they’re needed on the mural surface.
Usually I am dealing with only 3 or 4 colors at any point in time, but as the photo caption sums up, this is the touch-up phase. All this means is that I am rounding third base and on my way home with regards to this mural. I’ll be done will all touch-ups and alterations this week.
Trivia: Today I did indeed use every color shown here.
I was painting this morning at the mural and I thought to myself, “It sure seems like I’m multi-tasking today…”
I’m left-handed, so I looked down to my right hand and saw this…

My right hand often gets the task of being my personal assistant, but when it comes to painting, I am actually ambidextrous. Comes in handy. 😀
