Savannah artist Heather Leigh Young has a lucky paint cup that has been with her for twelve years. "It just can’t be replaced," she says, "The layers of colors remind me of projects from years gone by, and in some ways it’s a security blanket for me when I paint."
"My palette is actually quite simple," she continues, "I prefer aluminum foil on a paper plate. I like the reflective quality for paint mixing, and it’s super-easy to set up and clean up. It’s most handy on those days when I need to save a bit of my paint for the next day. I just cover the palette with more foil and place it in the refrigerator overnight."
"Lastly, I’m pretty loyal to my oil-wash brushes. I have three that came from a dollar store years ago. They have gnarly bristles and years of oil paint washes collected on them, but they give my work a nice texture that a new brush can’t duplicate."
