In order for me to start a new painting I must have order in the studio.  First, I wipe down my table and put away all my brushes and paint  I used during the last piece I was painting. Then  I get out a clean sheet of watercolor paper, T-Square, triangles and erasers, sharpen my pencils, have my photographs ready for reference,  and select my new group of music for the cd player.
