THREE PRIMARIES Posted by Hello


Colour samples made from three primaries, Indian Yellow, Red Ruby, Hortensia (Phthalo) Blue, and in some cases a little Titaniuim white, all manufactured by Lefranc. I could have easily mixed up more colours and tints, such as red-yellow grey (earth colours) and violet etc. I have come to the conclusion that these three transparent primary colours are adequate for most of my landscape paintings. Some still-life paintings such as flowers, may need additional cadmium red or orange.

Any way, my French easel is much lighter to carry after removing about 10 tubes of paint and leaving just four including white.
