LIFE IN THE STUDIO.
A can of solvent is used to clean oil paint out of brushes so they can be used again and again to paint different colors on the canvas. The solvent absorbs the old paint from the bristles and becomes dirty. In a few hours the pigment has fallen to the bottom of the can leaving clean solvent above the strainer to prep the next day's paint brushes. When not in use, a hinged lid closes the can to keep the solvent from evaporating.

  1. Hello there, I viewed your blog once before and got a whole lot of your ramblings as you call them and references to books etc which I bought but as yet have not read due to a move from Perth to Cairns but I haven't been able to find the ramblings again and can't remember if they were on a link? I love reading those as much as I love looking at your paintings
    Can you help me please
    Love Susie

  3. Thanks so much, L.D. I wanted to paint another view of this can, but time has gotten away from me today.

  4. Susie, thanks for reading the blog. I have no way of knowing which blog post you might be talking about as I ramble on pretty much in all of them. You could try the blog search field at the top of the page. Thanks also for respecting my copyright notice on all my text and images. Please use the "links to this post" field below each post if you'd like to repost something I've said. Thanks!
