Peeling a palette

When I paint in acrylic I generally use either a plate or a plastic tub as a palette to mix my paints in. But eventually it gets too lumpy and I peel the paint (which is like soft plastic or coloured PVA ) off the palette so I can start again without getting caught on lumpy bits of paint or bits that haven’t dried and muddy new paint.

But, have you ever looked underneath? It’s like magic. Beautiful colours that have not blended together too much. Plus often the surface is silky smooth as it takes on the same shape as the plastic tub or ceramic plate.

Then I take a photo, sometimes I’ll clone or duplicate it and make a pattern……
