Painting check list for artists.

Painting check list for artists.. Painting Lesson check list, tip and technique for artists.
Here are the checklist that you should have them memorized or make a flashcard. It is very useful to look at it before, during and finishing the painting.
FYI: I adopted the following key point in this check list for digital painting from master painter Richard Schmid. It is very useful key points for me to check my own painting over the past year or so. Observation and criticism of your work is the key.

2) Too many sharp edges.
3) Trying to paint things instead of shapes (Very KEY*** patches or shapes of value)
4) Painting more values than are necessary
5) Incorrect temperature transition (if you have cool shadow then the shadow stay only cool shade)
6) Muddy color or not confident blurry color

    Wow, that’s really a nice list! I’m glad you mentioned “poor selection of pigments and palettes”. Inspired by your palette, I have been trying to study palette choices of various artists. However, as my palettes grow, I don’t know how to organize them. Do you have any tips for me to organize my palette?
