For me, it is my trusty razor. Each day I am at the easel I wipe away about half of what I do. Maybe it's too sharp, too thick, too descriptive, too purple, too dark, any of the many toos we can have. Say more with less.
For pastel it's easy, before I leave the easel I wipe with my palm or a tissue. With oil I often go into a scraping frenzy with my trusted razor or give it a rubbing with a paper towel or tissue.
