Oil Paints and Palette

This is my standard 'tried and true' palette. I occasionally incorporate other colors, but they are usually used to achieve a specific effect or to utilize quality of a certain pigement.

  • Titanium White (Micheal Harding) 
  • Naples Yellow (Micheal Harding) 
  • Yellow Ochre (Micheal Harding) 
  • Cadmium Yellow Light (M. Graham) 
  • Cadmium Red Light (M. Graham) 
  • Alizarin Crimson (M. Graham) 
  • Burnt Sienna (Micheal Harding) 
  • Burnt Umber (Micheal Harding) 
  • Raw Umber (Micheal Harding) 
  • Ultramarine Blue (Micheal Harding)

Glass palette - Glass is non-porous and easy to scrape and clean. I spray paint the back of the glass with a middle value neutral grey. The grey aids in the accuracy of color and value mixing.
