Color and Medium Materials

January 24, 2016

Many artists who work in oil have different mediums and colors that they prefer. This is a view of what works for me and what I use during my painting endeavors. This isnt a strict palette since I do change and add some new colors to try out for studies and projects but for the most part, this is my standard palette. 



 1. Gamblin Titanium White 


2. Georgian Naples Yellow 


3. Gamblin Cadmium Yellow Medium 


4. Gamblin Yellow Ochre 


5. Gamblin Cadmium Orange 


6. Gamblin Cadmium Red Medium 


7. Gamblin Alizarin Crimson 


8. Gamblin Ultramarine Blue 


9. Georgian Cobalt Blue 


10. Gamblin Viridian 


11. Gamblin Burnt Sienna 


12. Gamblin Ivory Black 


13. Gamblin Turquoise 


14. Gamblin Cobalt Violet




For Mediums I like to use Winsor & Newton Refined Linseed Oil





After the painting is dry to the touch,

I usually apply 1-2 coats of Weber Damar Varnish.
