Hi, I’m Martha Spak with MLS Gallery. And today I’m showing you how to paint a still life oil painting. Right now I’m going to show you how to lay out your paint palette, talk about mixing mediums and sketch our scene. I have my paint tubes laid out in the order in which I’ve place them on my paint palette. They are black, paints gray, cobalt blue, teravert, yellow green, alizarin crimson, vermillion, yellow oaker, yellow cadmium medium, lemon yellow, misty blue, gray medium, and white. And I’ve laid them in as I say in the order of which I got them laid out in case I need more, but I think I put in okay. I have my three pale colors on the lower left, because I’ll be pulling those with the other ones into the center. Now let’s talk about mixing mediums, I have turpenoid, which is a odorless turpentine that I used for mixing to make a translucent paint. It is a very thin wash that goes on and helps to lay in our first scene or sketch. I also used another mixing medium, which is not necessary, but I find that it’s very useful because it helps make the paint creamy. It goes on smoother and it does not leave a shine or texture at the end in the drying process. So let’s go ahead and sketch our scene. I’ve put a little turpenoid in my little container here. I’m gonna go ahead and add some of the gel of the liquin. Take my cloth… and a little yellow oaker and turpenoid, and I’m just going to make it into a very translucent wash. Now let’s sketch our scene. Remember, if you don’t like the way your paint your sketch is looking, this comes off very easily and you can, you can start again. Make it loose and then you can clean up as you check your scene. So that is how to lay out your paint palette, mixing mediums and how to sketch your scene. Now let’s talk about laying in the body color and body shadow.
