A reader of this blog has written to me asking for a larger version of my color chart. It is rather smudged, (I like to blame these type of things on my son) Srishti, hope you can read the names this time.
I have to mention here that I have stopped using many of these colors now. The colors that I mentioned in the demos are all that I paint with. Colors like brilliant purple and mauve are real pretty but don’t have good lightfastness. Green earth (gruen erde) is of such a light value, you need to mix lots of it ……. I haven’t yet figured out what it would be good for. Ditto for rose madder (krapp lack rosa). Translucent orange is really nice but in heavy washes, it starts looking a bit opaque. Actually, I have made a new selection of paper and paints (Daniel Smith, Winsor and Newton, MGraham, Maimeri Blu in addition to Schminke)
