The colors in this are really an impressive show of nature. I just hope my coloring skills are up to the task, which brings me to taking stock of my paints. I wrote in an earlier post about how I like to make charts as an inventory of my colors. Well, I picked up a few more tubes lately and thought it was time they joined the fun. Is there anything better than meandering down an aisle of nothing but paint tubes- I think not!
My desk right now with my new charts. I don't want to give the impression that I work like a robot matching colors for each section of a painting but it does help tremendously in those first washes and glazes. It also is a reminder of the colors I actually have, because, as you can see, they do all start to
pile up. And having the charts is quite freeing once I start painting. The products I prefer are Winsor & Newton and Grumbacher and, of couse, Arches 140 lb. cold pressed paper.
