    I just loved reading this goopy newsletter! Great to be reminded of the palette although I haven’t been using it much lately … Soon, however, I’m travelling to South Africa and when I return – there shall be painting done. And gardening and living my ‘new’ life.

    Wishing you well with your work – still as gorgeous as ever!

  • Love the palette especially with the new substitutions. I am searching for a red and a yellow to replace the cadmium mediums too. Maybe I will try the modern vermilion. I actually have a tube of actual vermilion (W&N) bought back in the 70’s and handed down to me. I just checked it… Yes it is still ok but I am not sure how toxic it is or if I should actually use it at all!

      I’d use it for sure.

    I always wondered about mediums. There are so many and their uses must be in the multiples. Glad to hear you use none and work right out of the tube…so to speak. You give us all inspiration and education Jerry. Thank You!

  • Hi Jerry, you mentioned that you have changed to vermillion, which brand are you using. I have found that the temperature varies immensely from brand to brand.
    Thanks

  • FINALLY a connection to you. I learned a lot from this. I live and paint in the desert Southwest of USA so my palette has earth pigments.
    I started painting with pastels 19 years ago, but also now work with oils. 2 very different mediums.
    I would like to buy a copy of your first book but trying getting it through Blog is IMPOSSIBLE! Any other source?
    Thank you so much and look forward to your blogs from now on.
    (No clue about twitter nor facebook – keep life simple and focussed on painting)
    Thanks so much.
