X3 Palette


“Flood After 1st Snow”, 8×10 oil on canvasboard, by Rog Lyngaas, 21jan09, using X3 Palette.

This piece is the third in a series.  My friends who own the first probably are wondering where the hell I am going with this theme.  So let me explain.  Obama is in charge now.  He emphasizes change.  Each painting of this series shows change in seasons.

This painting is also the first time I used the X3 palette.  It’s Details are below…

X3 Palette …mostly Winton Colors

Cool Blue = French Ultramarine Blue [pb29]
Warm Blue = Viridian Hue [pg7]
Cool Yellow = Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue [py74]
Warm Yellow = Yellow Ochre [py42]
Warm Red = Vermillion Red [pr170, po36, pw4]
Cool Red = Alizarin Crimson [pr83] …M.Graham Paint
Dark = Ivory Black [pbk9]
Light = Permalba [pw6,pw4] …Martin-Weber Paint

*** the “detuner” for Viridian Hue is a Raw Umber HUE, from a mix between Ivory Black and Yellow Ochre.  This is my “mud” as well.
