Chaotic painting arrangement on my ‘palettes’ appear disordered and random. However, they are actually deterministic and so are completely predictable given perfect knowledge of the initial condition. Hence the outcome is a painting appears to be made in a orderly manner..I pin the paper on a drawing board and paint it in horizontal or vertical position as the subject demands.
This is my watercolour palette.! I do not use the conventional palette. They are discarded white plastic plates which serve my purpose very well. Sometime I use a couple of them to complete a painting. After a painting is completed , I clean them up thoroughly and reuse them.
