Fabulous edges and brushstrokes and colors in the apple.

Another beauty! What colors do you use on you palette?

Sandra Galda said...

Thanks Karen and N. Rhodes! I have been keeping to the tubes recommended by Carol Marine at the first of the two workshops I have taken from her. A cool and a warm (relatively) of each primary color and titanium white and burnt umber.
Here is a list:

titanium white
cadmium yellow light
cadmium red medium
alizarin crimson
ultramarine blue
phthalo blue
burnt umber

I have tons more colors I could explore in my studio, and I will someday, but that abbreviated group seems to do it all for me and I am becoming so used to it I have little desire to change at this point. :)

Actually I often use Cad lemon in place of cad light.....

Sandra, Just beautiful work, great brushwork combined with those nice warm hues makes for a vibrant and lively piece.

This is really nice Sandra, I love all the color peeking through the apple!

Wow Sandra! Pour the Juice is postively inspiring. LOVE the grays and poppy orange slices.

I'm just finished with my second (3 day) workshop with Carol Marine here in Rhode Island. You have really mastered the grays which are the essence of her paintings. Your colors pop.

Gwen Bell said...

Love both of these! You always paint such gorgeous grays.
