Ten Tubas Painting Done

February 9, 2011

I’ve finally gotten this oil painting covered. I need to still make a few touch-ups, but it’s done for the most part. The light in the photo here is catching on some wet oil of the tubas causing it to look less smoothly blended that actually it is. I’ll make a better scan later. It’s 18×24″ on Multimedia Artboard paper.

Oil Paint Palette

On the right is the palette of colors I’ve used for this painting, for those who may be curious. That’s a 12″ pizza pan covered with a sheet of “Press-N-Seal” wrap. I slip it into a trash bag when not in use to slow the drying time.
In clockwise order:
1> Titanium White, 2> Cadmium Yellow Medium, 3> Jaune Brilliant Hue, 4> Cadmium Yellow Deep, 5> Alizarin Crimson Hue, 6> Burnt Sienna, 7> Raw Sienna, 8> Yellow Ochre, 9> Cerulean Blue, 10> Phthalo Blue, 11> French Ultramarine, 12> Ivory Black, 13> monochrome gray #1, 14> warm gray

#3 is actually PR188, PY3, and PW6 (Holbein)
#5 is PR206 Quinacridone Pyrrole (Winsor Newton)
#13 is PY42, PBk9, and PW6 (Holbein)
#14 is PY42, PBk9 (Lukas)

All of these happen to be water-miscible oils, by the way, mostly Holbein “Aqua DUO.”
