I was just wondering which colors you normally have on you palette for painting in WSOs. I'll be back later to enter mine. I use to know them off hand but I've just recently revamped my whole palette and some of the names are not familiar. Smile

Must Have:
Brnt Umber, Raw Sienna, Naples Yellow, Payne's Grey, Olive Green, Sap Green,
Cad. Yellow (and Cad. Yel. med.), Cad. Red med., Aliz. Cr. (permanent), Ultra. Blue, Cobalt Blue and Titanium white

Nice to have:

Callie Thank you for sharing your palette!

I primarily choose my colors based on the split primary palette. I do add secondary colors for convenience and a few of the earch tones.

My palette is as follows:

Split Primary Palette
Imidazolone Yellow (Yellow that leans toward Orange)
Lemon Yellow (Yellow that leans toward Green)
Phthalo Blue (Blue that leans toward Green)
Ultramarine Blue (Blue that leans toward Violet)
Anthraquninone Red (Red that leans toward Violet)
Quinacridone Scarlet (Red that leans toward Orange)

Secondary Colors
Phthalo Green
Dioxazine Violet
Orange

Earth tones
Yellow Ochre
Burnt Umber
Burnt Sienna

Some of those new color names that I've added to my palette are a mouthful. Smile

I'm not a methodical painter with a correctly laid out palette: I just put out what I'll be using for a particular painting, and add something if I find I need it. Right now I've got:
phthalo green (blue shade).
dioxazine purple,
prussian blue,
yellow ochre,
naples yellow,
cadmium yellow light (hue),
cadmium red deep hue,
and titanium white.
I might add a bit of lemon yellow as well if I keep working on the golden rain tree.

Sofie, I tend to do the same thing; just put out what I need for what I'm working on, then add more colors as needed. I don't lay out the colors in the same order every time either.
Janet - are those Duo Aqua colors?

Sofie thank you for sharing your palette. Smile

Callie, oops I forgot to state the brand. Sorry about that. Yes they're all Holbein Duo Aqua. Smile

Sofie, which brand/s are you using?

Out of the other (non-Artisans) brands I've tried, I like the Lukas Berlin Titanium White and their Warm Grey.

I'm using the Artisan, Callie. The only one that is not Artisan is the cadmium yellow light (hue) which is Lukas Berlin.

Janet, good idea to "Sticky" those color charts! Nice to see what colors everyone is talking about.

Callie, I'm glad you like the charts. I don't like going to look for them when I need them so I figured I can't be the only one that feels this way. I'm going to be putting together some tests on glazing eventually but I needed to know which colors were transparent so I have a good starting point. The charts help a lot for finding out at a glance which colors will work. Smile

I pretty much have all the colors that Callie mentioned from WN. I do only lay out the colors I use, but only as I need them. I usually only use 3 or 4 colors plus white in most of my paintings. Occasionally a 5th color comes in minimally when I can't get the color I want by mixing what I have.

I don't lay out my colors on my palette either. If I did I know I'd be tempted to use them all. I just choose 2 colors to start and only add colors as needed trying as much as possible to mix my colors with what is already on my palette. I find it a good way to get color harmony. Smile

Hi Janet;

On my web website at http://www.jmossmanart.com/ (under the Creating A Painting page) are listed the palettes of four teaching artists. These are traditional oils, not WSO. However, there are fairly close WSO matches to almost all of them. Their palettes are all very different and the interesting thing is that all four have painted in the same area under similar conditions and all produced works that are very representative of this area of Wyoming. So there is more than one way to get good results. There are far more differences between these traditional oil palettes than you would experience by choosing the closest matching WSO colors to any one of them.

Regards,
Jim

Thank you Jim for the link! You're rite the colors in each of the palettes are standard colors and easily transferrable to Water Soluble Oils. I agree completely it's not necessarily the colors you use but how you use them that is more important. I browsed through your site you have fantastic information. Your paintings are beautiful!
