I really enjoyed working with everyone at the Color Relations class this last Saturday. I hope everyone is starting to see color even during this drab season! Many of you asked about how I set up my palette and exactly which colors and pigments I use. I will start with my bare-bones, limited palette. While I do enjoy experimenting with new pigments and higher quality artist paints, the Winsor & Newton Artisan water mixable paints are my work-horses, and for most of the time I stick with the following limited palette. The paints have a high pigment load, and excellent working properties for knife painting. Best of all they are permanent, inexpensive (comparatively), easy to wash off, and non-toxic (I do not use the cads this brand offers) in case the boys decide to try their hand at finger-painting.
