"I agree. Using limited colours gives a sense of unity to the colouring of your painting.It teaches you about colour and makes your paintings look better. Limiting your palette also teaches you about colour bias and why you sometimes can't mix…"

Limit to Primary Colors?

I find a limited artist palette works wonders. It frees me from a box of artist paint tubes that in time some will just have a tendency to dry out.It…See More

Have you tried Artisian water mixable oils?   Maybe these will not give you a reaction as the harsh chemicals are not present in the use or clean up.  Acrylics are nice if you use the mediums that keep them open long enough.  I know Golden Brand has a new OPEN acrylic they just came out with and gives you a longer period for the day to work on them, then there is the interactive acrylics to rewet them for blending days later.  Keep painting, Sandra.

You art work is stunning.  I hope to one day reach this quaility of work.  Oh and thank you for commenting on my Sunflower painting, it was my first Surresism painting from a dream I had.  I am new to painting as of 2007 and self taught, I did do a mural in my kitchen in 2001 using house paint just to see if I could.  My dad has encouraged me to try painting and I found I do like it.  My dad started learning to paint but he uses oils, and I had thought one day I woudl try artist paint and see if i could paint.  My husband bought me some paints when we moved to West TN and pushed me into trying it, I started out in Acrylics but quickly moved on into the Water mixable oils Artisian by Winsor & Newton and just about solely use those now.  Regular oil paint is out for me due to allergies to the solvents, and migraines from the odors. 


Might I ask what your favorite mediums are to work with and why you like them, what are the pro's and con's of using them?
