1) Do not dip dirty paintbrush in your drink glass instead of your dirty paint water glass. Paint is not refreshing (we learned this last week)
2) Be careful that the balaclava you are painting looks like a balaclava and not black face. A balaclava is a ski mask. Black face is always racist.
3) If it looks like crap, stop fighting it and paint over. Even if it means you're losing the things you liked about it.
4)Wine really does help, as long as you're not going for super precise tiny painting. Drink up!
That is your lesson for the week.
