Day 8 ~ the palette and the block in

The palette is part of the process. I’ve decided to follow along with a painting video by Kathie Odom. She’s one of my favorite artists and she paints interesting places that tell a story to her. Today I’m using a palette that is modified from one that she uses.

Here are the colors chosen for this palette from right to left…

Titanium White

Lemon Yellow

Cadmium Yellow Medium

Cadmium Yellow Deep

Cadmium Orange

Cadmium Red Light

Cadmium Red Scarlet

Yellow Ochre



Burnt Sienna

Cobalt Blue

Ultramarine Blue

Burnt Umber

Cobalt Teil

Ice Blue

I also did the block in of my painting today, as you can see in the photo. I actually progressed further than this today, but I’ll share that tomorrow.

And in case you’re interested, here’s a link to Kathie Odom’s website The Oil Paintings of Kathie Odom
