A view of my palette.

DSCF4911Here is the usual arrangement of my palette. I start in the upper left and work light to dark and warm to cool with my earth colors separated at the bottom. Put out more paint than you think you will use. This will free you to paint thickly without worrying about having enough paint on the palette.


In this picture I am preparing to start my underpainting using Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna so I have only placed a small amount of the other colors as place holders so you can see my arrangement.

About Denis

A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art; I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I have always been inspired by the art of Romantic painters such as Eugene Delacroix, John Constable and W.M. Turner. I consider myself a modern Romantic seeking to capture the emotion or feeling of a subject above all else. Charles Baudelaire described Romanticism as "...situated neither in choice of subject nor exact truth, but in the way of feeling".
