When I engage creatively, I get totally immersed. Even though I have a studio log, I completely forget to record the colors I'm mixing and my thoughts/ideas at the end of a painting session. Oh so frustrating when I try to go back and recreate a color. Yesterday I just took out my journal & painted some samples of some new color mixes and how I got them, then added some notes listing the brushes I used and liked best. I think the secret will be to always keep it open and available. Do you keep records of your process? What works best for you?
