Shari Blaukoft is one of my favorite painters to follow. Here is a recent posting of her current palette on her new blog post, and also links to Parkablogs, which is another great blog to follow if you are a painter (or like reading about them!)
I’ve been looking forward to writing a more detailed post about the colours on my palette after Parkablogs asked the question a few weeks ago. It’s grey and damp in Montreal (January thaw) so instead of getting out to sketch, I made a little schematic of what I am currently using.
This comes with a few disclaimers:
1: There are no rights and wrongs with colour. Colour choices can be very personal and different people have success with different pigments. For example, I rarely use Phthalo or Prussian blue because they just don’t work for me. Or rather I can’t make them work. Other people use them to great success. Have a look at how successful Alvaro Castagnet is with reds or Milind Mulick is with pale greens.
2. Value is more important than colour, so if you can get the right value with whatever colour you are using, you will have a higher success…
