I finally figured out how to paint from a reference photo on my ipad and still keep it clean. I hang it from the top of my easel and cover the screen with plastic wrap.
When I near the completion of a painting, the pastels and tools I'm using are a dusty, dirty mess. I take a moment to clean
pastels and tidy up my work area before putting the finishing touches on a painting.
