I still love viridian mixed with alizarin forgoreous darks and mixing it with ultramarine blue for a turquoise that is more transparent than the cobalt turquoise. Reply Anita McClellan July 13, 2019 Chris, I am newly engrossed in your Provence journal and curious as to where you tell its readers what your 3-week sketching/painting travel kit consisted of in 2014 or what you use today July 2019 when not paragliding/painting! Reply Chris Carter July 13, 2019 Hi Anita. I don’t think I listed the pigments I used in Provence. I probably had a few extras in my palette, not knowing what I would need. My basic palette has been the same now for about five years. When I’m limited to four in my mini altoid tin I use Aureolin (or gamboge), alizarin crimson, cadmium red light and ultramarine blue (one yellow, a warm red, a cool red and a warm blue) If I’m not limited, I use aureolin, gamboge, cad red light, alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue and Joe’s blue (phthalo) plus cobalt turquoise and cobalt violet. That was my palette in Provence and that’s still my palette. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
