Those paintings are nice. Are those soft-bodies in the little cups? What do you use for a palette? I used a piece of glass this summer but just cut a piece of plexi to fit my box to save some weight. I've never used plexiglass and am worried it will be hard to clean.

Thanks, Hank! The cups have regular acrylics with water added. Enough mass that it can't form a skin. I use Nova Slow Dry Liquid and a spray bottle. My palette is 'Grey Matters Paper Palette' by Jack Richeson. I sometimes use Golden Open Acrylics which are great, but can take longer than oils to dry if too thick. I've found Plexiglas to be hard to clean.
