  1. Hi... I'm new in town : )

    I just found your blog and I really like your paintings!

    I was wondering if you would share what your 7 favorite colors are in your painting palette... and what brand of paint you use.

    Thanks a bunch!

  2. Hi Doug and welcome! Thank you for asking my favorite paints. My palette is made up of the following seven colors;
    Alizarin Crimson Hue Permanent
    Cadmium Red Medium
    Cadmium Yellow Light
    Cadmium Yellow Medium
    Phthalo blue (green shade)
    Ultramarine Blue (green shade)
    Titanium White

    And my favorite brand is Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions. . . I'd be happy to!

  3. Thanks for the reply!

    I just got a few Golden Open Acrylics that have a bit longer drying time, but I have not had a chance to test drive them yet. Acrylic dries so fast, doesn't it!

  5. I haven't tried the open acrylics, but I've heard great things about them - I use an old hairspray bottle to mist my paintings and my palette to keep things from drying. You could try a little Golden Acrylic Retarder medium - I use it when I work bigger sometimes.

  6. Lisa! Love the tiny pot in this one. Love the blues and greens. Bravo. You are so very cool!
