Swatches



Pin It
After reading the great Alla prima for the second time I finally decided to start doing charts to get a better understanding of my colors and how they mix together.
It's a lot of work to make these charts but hopefully it will make me a better, more confident color mixer. When you don't have to waste time thinking about mixing you can spend that time on the actual painting.



This is the first chart of the unmixed colors. They are from left to right:
-Cadmium yellow pale hue (unfortunately W&N Artisan doesn't have Cadmium yellow pale)
-Yellow ochre
-Burnt sienna (Transparent oxide red not available in W&N Artisan)
-Indian red
-Cadmium red light
-Permanent alizarin crimson
-Viridian
-Cobalt blue
-Ultramarine
-Raw umber

Great crested grebe stage 2



Pin It


Haven't had a lot of time to paint lately but I worked a little on a watercolour painting I started some time ago. Really have to get used to watercolours.

Exhibition Oostvaardersplassen



Pin It


During the months April/May/June my paintings can be seen at an exhibition in Lelystad, the Netherlands. Location is the visitors center of the Oostvaardersplassen.
It's a great place to start a walk in the area, and lots of wildlife and special birds can be seen there.
