David Kinker: “Creativity Driven by Color

  • Primary colors will do
  • Add secondary to save work and wider color gambit, greater strategy options
  • Modern colors can add greater chroma and transparent options, specifically:
    • quinacridone gold
    • magenta
    • phthalo turquoise
    • dioxide purple
  • Slow dry blending medium (or glazing medium)
  • Include a “red orange” as a complement to the phthalo
  • Titanium white, black, is recommended
