Many people have ask me what colors I use on a specific painting or area of a painting. Its often hard to remember an exact mixture I may have used in a specific area of a painting so I thought I would post the colors that are always laid out on my palette. I've used different brands of paint throughout the years and i've enjoyed all of them. The only color paint that requires a specific brand for my use is the Transparent Oxide Red and I've found it must be the Rembrandt brand of paint. I also really enjoy Cobalt Blue Light in the Windsor Newton brand. All of the other colors I've used in varying brands and have found them each wonderful in their own way.
As far as specific color mixtures go, that is a difficult question to ask because so much depends on what it is you are seeing, what temperature is the light and what is surrounding the object being painted. Everything that is painted needs to be in correct relationship to what is around it. In terms of color, value, temperature, etc. I've found when I'm having trouble in a certain area of a painting I often stop painting it and paint what is around it. I then go back to the trouble area and find it much easier to paint because I've painted the shapes, color, value, etc that is around it and can now have something more accurate to relate it to.
