My paint palette

5February 2011

I have been working with a new palette, or at least a new set of oil colors.  I prefer to work with Old Holland oil paints, but recently I found a company called Williamsburg that creates oil colors at the same quality as the old Liquitex oils from the 70’s.

The new colors have inspired me to reinvestigate my ides of mixing and preparing oils.  I decided to start out with a classic layout of the colors.  Starting with the Atelier stye of laying out one’s palette in the form of the color wheel.  It makes mixing easy for any artist.

From there, I just start the mixing and add colors as I need them…

It is simple, and I like it.
