Sample Palette for painting the Mediterrannean
PAINTING AT THE CALA SAN VINCENS
IN THE GARDENS OF LA SERRANIA
MY NEW PALETTE
Here are a few color palettes based on the paintings I did last year in Mallorca!
That Mediterranean sea eluded all the blues I usually have on palette except luckily I had a little bit of Cobalt Turquoise in my painting bag and that did it!
I used plenty of Olive Green when painting the gardens everywhere. Please note that is Ivory Black
in the lower right hand corner. Very useful for all the texture on the trunks and branches.
These colors are just a suggestion and what I usually paint with:
(starting at upper left) Ivory Black, Raw Umber, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Sepia, Indigo Blue,
Cerulean Blue (warm blue) Cobalt and French Ultramarine (cool blues), Viridian Green (cool green),
Olive Green (of course for all those olive trees, a warm green!), Cadmium Yellow (warm yellow), Lemon Yellow (cool yellow), Naples Yellow (because I love it), Cadmium Red (warm red), Quinacridone Magenta (cool red), Buff Titanium from Daniel Smith.
Cobalt Turquoise in the corner of the mixing area.
