What is on your Palette?
It's important to understand what the paints we have on our palettes are capable of doing; what their properties are and how to use them to the greatest advantage of our paintings is really vital if your desire is to, one day, be considered a Master. This little PDF has information about some of the most popular pigments on our palette.
This is a list of popular pigments and is by no means a complete list of all the colors available. You are encouraged to research the pigments you have on your palette. Some of the things to look for: Lightfastness, Temperature, (though the temperature of a color is ultimately determined by what it is next to/surrounded by in a painting), Value, and Pigment are all very important information which can be determining factors as to how long the color of a painting will last when it is hangs in a real world situation.
