Palette 2003

This is my starting palette, constituted of students' grade paints. The palette follows a split primary theory, after Wilcox's book. Thus, the basic palette is made of six paints (two set of three primaries). The extended palette incorporates some of the extended palette paints recommended by Wilcox.

I ditched these paints from my artwork in 2006, when I upgraded to artists' quality paints (although I used some in a few earlier works in that year).

Basic palette Name Brand Lightfastness/Permanence Notes
Coeruleum (hue) System-3 Daler-Rowney Very good (3/4) The green-blue primary.
Ultramarine System-3 Daler-Rowney Very good (3/4) The violet-blue primary.
Cadmium red (hue) System-3 Daler-Rowney Very good (3/4) The orange-red primary.
Crimson System-3 Daler-Rowney Very good (3/4) The violet-red primary. I ditched this paint for "purple" after reading the second edition of Wilcox's book.
Purple System-3 Daler-Rowney Very good (3/4) The violet-red primary (which displaced "crimson" from that role).
