Oil Paints

To paint you gotta have paint right. Here's my oil paints I using right now. Winsor Newton Artisan water soluble oils. They're good buttery and clean up fast. I haven't found any real issues that would keep me from continuing to use these except curiosity. I have lots of colors but use a simpler palette. Imagine the image of my palette until I get around to taking a picture.

 

The prime palette starting from upper right to left. Bold signify primary colors. A big blob of Titanium White, Alazarin Crimson, Cad Red Hue, Cad Orange, Lemon Yellow, Cad Yellow Light, Cad Yellow, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine Blue, (tucked behind these blues are small blob of Phthalo blue),  Dioxazine Purple, Verdian.

Holding for correct palette image.

Running down the left side are my earth colors. Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Burt Sienna, Indian Red, Black mixed from Ultramarine, Burnt Umber and Crimson.

I will often add Naples yellow and Cerulean Blue. They can be very effective and quick in many situations.

 

Mediums.

I am planning on testing with a limited palette serval better brands of standard oil colors in the near future. Like I said early I'm not unhappy with the Artisan paints. I d like to see what differences may help me with my palette.
