You can take any actions in any order. So you could work in the morning and paint with those same cubes in the afternoon. That would be your whole day.
Can you please clarify something about this?
For the "take 3 paint cubes from the bag" action, it says "You cannot paint with these yet."
The tone of your answer (and the original question) has me wondering: it just says "yet."
You don't have to wait until the afternoon to paint with those cubes, do you? Can you use your second morning action (after drawing cubes for the first action) to paint with them?
Or should they be held aside until the afternoon?
And what does that mean if you draw in the afternoon if that is the case? Can they not be used until the next morning?
Thank you! Played this for the first time yesterday and it was interesting.
