How to Make a Paint Pallet
On behalf of Tvlessson.com, my name is Angeline-Marie. I'm a professional artist with Angelinemarie.net. In this clip, we’re going to talk about palettes. Everybody seems to think that an artist has to use his traditional style of palette. Notice, it’s round. It's got the thumb hole and all the colors are laid out. And one thing that’s traditional, how the colors are laid out. They go from the greens, the yellows, everything is in groups, the blues and the purples, the reds, some more browns and then all the mixing in the middle.
You don’t have to be traditional to use a palette. I’ve used some crazy things. For example, I'm out of palette, I’ve used paper plates. What’s the advantage? I could throw it away. I can rip it up. It doesn’t matter if it breaks. It doesn’t matter if the paint stains it because guess what? It’s cheap and I can throw it away.
Another palette I love to use, my favorite is using a piece of canvas. Now, you might be wondering “Why would I want to use a piece of canvas for a palette. Isn’t it going to be a final painting?” Well, guess what? That is the under painting for anything. It’s wild. It’s crazy and I've had some of my best work come out from a palette painting because you never know what you’ll see.
Another kind of palette, I've even used lids of bottles because I don’t have anything else with me. This makes a great palette. Notice I have used it in the past? You have one surface done, you can use the other. So, again, as an artist, be creative to find a palette. You don’t need to use the traditional.
On behalf of Tvlesson.com, this is Angeline-Marie. Thank you for watching.
