Ultimately there are many ways to make a painting
Pre-mix key colours
Ask yourself what you are trying to achieve (in simple terms)
Have a rough compositional idea
Make a quick sketch
Make a sketch to warm up – 5 min only!
Have all you need to hand
Use quickest materials i.e. pencil.
A sketch is a good place to work out a rough composition

Experience will improve your decision
Ask yourself has the painting achieved what you wanted it to
Put the painting away for a while, then look at it again with fresh eyes.
