Mixes

I always try to create various value streams of color, not mixing solid colors but having marbled colors, starting from dark to light. That way I can pick up various shades, without mixing, as I go.

  • SG + Black (very dark green)
  • SG + IY + TW (pale yellow/green)
  • CR+IB = various shades of rusty red
  • Other brush mixes

Medium

Safflower Oil (artist grade) diluted to 50/50 – with Galkyd Lite Medium (has a dryer in it). You can use any painting medium (liquid clear, 1/4 linseed oil mixed with 3/4 odorless thinner, walnut oil mixture, etc.
