My work today on Spring was all blues: ultramarine blue-violet on the blouses of the outer-most figures; cerulean blue and black on the pants of the middle woman. Magnesium blue and Veronese green on the Bug. All cut with cool grays, of course.
I love Old Holland paint; they’re my favorite, but they’ve priced themselves out of my range with their lurid prices. These days I stick with the good mid-range brands: W & N, RGH, and Blue Ridge (I just placed an order for more Blue Ridge colors). I used to use Doak a lot too, but their customer service is nonexistent, so when I finish what I have, that’ll be it.
I used Old Holland’s Madder Lake Deep on the central figure’s shirt and blouse. It’s a beautiful color that handles like a dream. Pigment density is rich and covers well.
