If I feel like I’m hurried because I’m painting in the morning before work, I don’t usually get fresh paint out, I will just use crayon or pencil, this is good as it slows me down a bit, as I can get crazy with painting and do too much. Different moods create different looks and I like that. If I sit and paint in one long session, it can look too streamlined, neat and I don’t like that look. So this works for me, sit down and paint in short bursts. However if I do have lots of time, I usually collage and start several projects and work on each one for a little while, giving them drying time.
